Top military aide to the Iranian Leader Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi said that the United States cannot once again take control of Iran's economy.

Iran PressIran news: Top military aide to the Iranian Leader Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi made the remarks at Tehran-based Holy Defense Museum on Saturday in a ceremony for unveiling a book related to Iran-Iraq war.

According to documents found in the US embassy in Tehran, from the 1953 Coup to the overthrow of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi in 1979 all the affairs of Iran were in control of the United States, the Iranian General highlighted, Mehr News Agency reported.

In the past 40 years, the US has put all-out effort to fight Iran but they have conceded a defeat and are forced to retreat from the western Asian region, Safavi added.

The Iranian General went on to say that the power of the United States is waning, and with the formation of the Resistance Axis and the guidance of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and late Imam Khomeini (RA), nations take control of their own fate.

Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei said on Saturday that the United States has always been on the losing side of the 40-year-long war it has waged against the Islamic Republic of Iran.
