Tehran (IP) - Special advisor of Iranian parliament speaker for international affairs says the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei "had warned the officials in a meeting that the change in Syria would change the political geography of the region and advised them to work hard."

Iran Press/Iran news: Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, special advisor of Iranian parliament speaker for international affairs, expressed his condolences on the anniversary of the martyrdom of Lt Gen Qasem Soleimani and his companions on Wednesday evening and said: "For the past 40 years, the Americans and their allies have been trying to establish new political and security arrangements in the region known as the Greater Middle East Initiative but Gen Soleimani and his companions were able to break these arrangements and establish new arrangements."

He said: "Since the beginning of the Islamic Awakening in the region in 2011, we have witnessed the fall of the puppet rulers of the region and this wave continued in a domino effect. Enemies tried to change the situation by reverse engineering. They tried to strengthen the occupying Israeli regime, and let the Islamic countries either fight with ISIS or be engaged in the Shia-Sunni or ethnic divisions, which will result in the division of the countries in the region.

He added: "This disintegration was supposed to start from Iraq and Syria, and even Saudi Arabia, an ally of the United States, was to be disintegrated."

Amir-Abdollahian emphasized: "Soleimani's great work in translating the Leader's vision is to disrupt the US political, security, and regional arrangements and focus on the doctrine of resistance and create maximum hope in the shadow of new political and security arrangements called the Resistance Front or Axis of Resistance."

The former diplomat said that sometimes the Americans suggest that it was the Republicans who targeted Soleimani, and the perpetrators are no longer in the White House. "I declare loudly that the commanders and perpetrators will definitely be punished for their actions, but the US government has a legal and international responsibility and must be held accountable for that heinous act."
