Iran’s Supreme Leader in meeting with a number of the Judiciary officials on Sunday addressed recent developments in Iraq.
"Behind the curtain in Iraq’s sedition there are Western monopolizing powers headed by the US. The Islamic Republic of Iran strongly disapproves of any sort of intervention by the US in Iraq’s domestic affairs, believing the people and the religious reference of the country to be able to end the dustup.”
Providing remarks on statements by US officials Ayatollah Khamenei asserted "What has happened in Iraq is no war between the Shiite and Sunni. It is rather the domineering system which is trying to disturb the country’s peace and to threaten its territorial integrity through the remnants of the Saddam regime as key figures and Takfiri members as troopers.”
"The real agents of sedition in Iraq are as much enemies with the devout Sunni who believe in an independent Iraq as they are with the Shiite,” he further stated.
The Supreme Leader pointed out "In Iraq the original fight goes on between those who want Iraq to join the US camp and those who want Iraq independent.”
