TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran’s Judiciary Chief Sadeq Amoli Larijani lashed out at the US and other western states for their double-standard policies on terrorism in and out of Iraq.
“These countries call themselves as advocates of human rights, but they have brought human rights to a slaughterhouse, how can one believe that the Americans are advocates of human rights while they support the terrorists,” Amoil Larijani said, addressing high-ranking judiciary officials in Tehran on Wednesday.
He said that the US and Israel which are displeased with the democratic elections recently held in Iraq and Syria are now happy with the terrorist operations happening in the two countries, which explains their double-standard policies on terrorism.
Amoli Larijani underlined that the events in the Middle-East indicate that the West doesn’t care for human rights and democracy at all.
In relevant remarks, Iranian Ambassador to Beirut Mohammad Fath-Ali voiced opposition to Washington’s interference in Iraq, and said the US is attempting to change the results of the recent elections in Iraq using terrorist groups like the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
“We are opposed to any foreign meddling, specially the US, in Iraq,” Fath-Ali said in an interview with the Lebanese daily al-Safir on Tuesday.
“They are trying to change the results of the recent elections in Iraq and this will benefit the Zionist enemy,” he added.
Fath-Ali underlined that Iran supports anyone in Iraq who is elected by the people in a free and healthy atmosphere.
Many other regional and Iranian officials have also warned of enemies’ plots against the Muslim nations, specially Iraq.
On Friday, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani called on the Muslim nations to keep vigilant against the plots hatched by the enemies to disunite and weaken them.
“The flames of violence and extremism are flaring across the Muslim world, and ignorance and extremism have cleared the way for the realization of the longtime plot of the enemies of Islam in sowing discord and causing sectarian and tribal strife,” President Rouhani said in a message.
His message was addressed to the Muslim heads of state and governments in the run-up to the holy fasting month of Ramadan, which started in Islamic countries on Saturday or Sunday.
