US, Saudis increasing regional interference: Top Iran official

The United States and some “reactionary” countries in the Middle East such as Saudi Arabia are trying “to increase their interference” in regional affairs, a senior Iranian official says.

Ali Akbar Velayati, a top adviser to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, made the remarks on the sidelines of a meeting with Serbia’s Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic in Tehran, IRIB reported on Tuesday.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran still supports its regional allies such as the legal governments in Iraq and Syria, the Islamic resistance and the legal government in Lebanon, and the fighters for the Yemeni people,” he said.

“One of the very odd things the Americans do in the region is to bring a group a terrorists from various countries and train them in Syria’s neighboring countries,” he said adding that “these terrorists do nothing except killing the oppressed people of Syria, Iraq and Yemen,” the Senior Iranian official stated.

He also told a Press TV correspondent the “Iran is against any kind of foreign intervention in internal affairs of Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen,” adding that the US and its allies want to “impose their will” on the governments of these countries.

Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed in Syria and Iraq due to a deadly crisis created by foreign backed ISIL Takfiri militants since the past years, while relentless Saudi air raids against Yemen have left thousands of people dead in the impoverished Arab country since late March.
