Supreme leader of Iran opposed US intervention in Iraq and denied to relate the battle between Shias and Sunni on Sunday. “We are strongly opposed to interference by the Americans and others in Iraq’s internal affairs, and we do not approve of it because we believe the Iraqi government and people and the religious authorities of the country are able to end the sedition,” the leader said during a meeting with a number of Judiciary officials in Tehran on Sunday.
He also stated that what is happening in Iraq is not a war between Shias and Sunnis, but actually part of a plot by the hegemonistic powers, which are using remnants of the regime of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein as the driving force. “The main elements behind the sedition in Iraq are as hostile towards the faithful Sunnis who believe in Iraq’s independence as they are hostile toward Shias,” he said, adding , “The main dispute in Iraq is between those people who want Iraq to join the US camp and those who are seeking Iraq’s independence.
