Anti-Iran stances in Munich rooted in certain countries’ failure in Iraq, Syria: Adviser

Tasnim – A senior military adviser to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said the stances adopted by certain countries against the Islamic Republic at the Munich Security Conference had their roots in their defeats in Iraq and Syria.

Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency, Major General Seyed Yahya Rahim Safavi denounced recent anti-Tehran remarks by the representatives of some countries in the MSC and said they are angry over their defeats in Iraq and Syria.

“The fact is that the proxy wars waged by the US, Zionists (Israelis), Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia in Syria and Iraq have failed,” he said, adding, “The immature stances adopted by some countries in the Munich conference have originated from their anger over the defeats.”

Major General Rahim Safavi further highlighted Iran’s successful strategy in countering regional terrorists, saying the Islamic Republic’s success in restoring security to Syria and Iraq has infuriated those who created terror groups like Daesh (ISIS or ISIL).

The remarks came after Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir and Israel’s Avigdor Lieberman delivered harsh speeches against Iran in the MSC in Germany.

The Zionist official even sought to support the Riyadh regime, alleging that Iran had an ultimate objective of undermining Saudi Arabia in the Middle East.

In response, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Bahram Qassemi said the Saudi and Israeli regimes are both attempting to “provoke the international atmosphere” against Iran in order to cover up their own defeats and failed policies in the region.

The recurring tone of Saudi and Israeli officials, whose regimes are collaborating in the suppression of people in the region, demonstrates “painful frustration” and resentment, Qassemi said.

It’s a pity that the occupying regime of Israel has counted on cooperation with an Islamic country –Saudi Arabia – to pursue its anti-Iran policies, the spokesman deplored.
