US hegemony declining: Senior Iranian cleric

IRNA – The US hegemony is declining and the regional nations are becoming more and more powerful, a senior Iranian cleric said on Friday.

‘Today, we are witnessing the gradual decline of the US hegemony and at the same time the rising power of the regional nations,’ Tehran’s interim Friday Prayer leader Hojatoleslam Mohammad Hassan AbuTorabi Fard said in the second sermon of his prayers speech.

The myth of US democracy has been replaced by hatred, racism, bullying and sectarianism, AbuTorabi Fard added.

He said that today, all small and big countries hate the US foreign policy.

He went on to laud the power yielded by Iran and the Axis of Resistance in the region.

The Islamic resistance pivot has dealt big blows to the US imperialism, he stressed.
