No Place for US in Middle East: Iranian General
A high-ranking Iranian general said that there is no place for US in Middle East and Americans must leave the region.
Iran Press/Iran news: Addressing a cultural ceremony in Iran’s northwestern city of Tabriz on Thursday, Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi, a top military aide to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei , added the US has made mistakes by launching military campaigns in West Asia, pointing to the deaths of thousands of American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In remarks in June, Ayatollah Khamenei said the US president has acknowledged that his country has spent $7 trillion in West Asia without achieving any results, describing it as the US defeat in the region, Iran Press reported.
Describing Iran, China, Russia and India as the world’s new eastern powers in the current century, Major General Rahim Safavi said the modern Iranian-Islamic culture and civilization have stood against the American liberalism.
He also said Iran’s clout has been extended to the Mediterranean region, adding that the country seeks to turn such an influence into wealth using digital arts. 105/203
