Actualité - Iran: US Responsible for Iraq Chaos

Teheran, Nov 28 (Prensa Latina) - Supreme Iranian leader Ali Jamenei attributed responsibility for the present situation in Iraq to the US presence in that country, and asserted its withdrawal would be the solution.

In a Tuesday meeting with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, who is visiting Iran, the supreme leader highlighted that the withdrawal of US troops and thus the return of power to the national government would be the solution to the prevailing insecurity.

In the talks, the Persian religious leader recalled that lack of security has caused thousands of Iraqi deaths and said an overriding concern is that it also affects neighboring nations.

He assured that the US would not succeed in its war in Iraq and that the present situation of non-government would be very dangerous both for US citizens and the region.

Talabani, who did not make any comment on Jamenei s criticism of Washington, expressed appreciation for the support provided by Teheran and called to extend bilateral cooperation in different areas.
