Tehran (IP) - The intelligence Minister has said, "existing national unity has broken the enemies' malign plans and might."

Iran Press/Iran news: Hojjatoleslam Esmaeil Khatib said on Thursday that national unity and territorial integrity have always existed in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

"During the recent unrests the western intelligence services and mass media used all their capabilities to blow and attack against powerful Iran, its sacred system and its always-ready-at-the-scene nation, its sagacious Supreme Leader and people's resistance, but once again they faced defeat," he added.

Khatib added that the enemies resorted to a full-scale complicated war in the recent unrest, inclusive of their entire communication and media facilities, which equals a media world war against Iran.

"The enemies resorted to hallucinating people, forging news, and using all their might to present a fake image and promote aggression, terrorism, and looting public properties as their top priorities," he said.

The intelligence minister reiterated that the enemies nurtured unrest and assisted the separatist grouplets, creating a psychological war against the sacred system of the Islamic Republic of Iran aimed at regime change.

"But the might of the country's security and armed forces, and the sagacious leadership of the Leader of the Islamic revolution, once again caused the enemies to face a severe defeat," he stressed.

He also rejected the claim that they had no role in the country's recent unrest, emphasizing, "Those efforts of the enemies is a sign of the Islamic Republic of Iran's might, and the Iranians' national unity to support this sacred political system."
