Envoy: Anti-ISIL coalition lacking seriousness

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Ambassador to Kuwait Alireza Enayati blasted the western countries and their regional allies for supporting terrorists in the region, and said that the anti-ISIL is just a political showoff.

“The recent performance of the anti-ISIL coalition shows that the coalition has not acted seriously,” Enayati said.

He noted that Iran knew that the anti-ISIL coalition was unreal since the beginning because the coalition was created by those countries that previously just watched the ISIL’s crimes.

The Iranian envoy reiterated the need for collective efforts to fight terrorism in the region.

Last week, Judiciary Chief Sadeq Amoli Larijani underlined that the US and the European countries are behind the wave of Takfiri terrorism in the region in a move to contain Islamic awakening and defame Islam.

“The killing of innocent people and other acts committed by this group have nothing to do with the Shiism and Sunnism; in fact it is one of the colonial policies of the US and the European countries who want to taint the image of Islam by introducing ISIL as Islam,” Amoli Larijani said in a meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi in Tehran on October 22.

He reiterated that terrorists do not pose a threat just to Iraq, “rather the world powers have more programs to make the Middle East region insecure.”

Amoli Larijani pointed to Iran’s support for Iraq in its fight against the terrorists, and said, “Iran will continue its strong moral and material support for Iraq and Iran’s record in supporting Iraq after the fall of Saddam Hussein clearly indicates this.”
