Iran's President Accuses US Of Pursuing 'Syria, Libya Plots'

Saturday, 11/05/2022

Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi says “the plots” the United States had previously developed and used against Syria and Libya have failed in Iran.

The hardliner president said the US and other “enemies” were trying to implement the model they already used in Libya and Syria to make Iran “insecure” but their “conspiracy proved futile” in the country.

Top officials of the Islamic Republic repeating past practice have been blaming the United States and other “enemies” for ongoing protests.

Addressing a group of university students, Raisi added Saturday “the riots and those who create insecurity must be dealt with,” however, despite ongoing protests he claimed that cities in Iran are calm at present.

Since the beginning of recent protests in Iran, which was ignited by the death of Mahsa Amini in police custody, security forces have violently repressed the demonstrators in killing nearly 300 people, including dozens of children.

The severe suppression of protests, also in schools and universities, has sparked worldwide reactions with many governments, including the US, expressing solidarity with the Iranian people.

Raisi’s claim about “enemy plots” to turn Iran into Syria is made in a situation that Syrian Bashar al-Assad’s crackdown on protesters became possible only with the military assistance and troops from Iran and Russia.
