In public speech, Iranian president says he envisions new Middle East without presence of Israel, US and their allies.
The world will see a new Middle East without the United States and Israel, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Wednesday in a speech to thousands of people in the southeastern city of Zahedan, Iranian PressTV reported.
“A new Middle East will emerge without the presence of the United States and the Zionist regime (Israel) and their allies in the near future,” said Ahmadinejad.
The president accused the US and Israel of plotting to “spark an Iranian-Arabian Shia-Sunni conflict.”
The president denounced “US imperialism” in the region, saying, “Regional governments and nations should remain vigilant to overcome US plots and to not play in the US court.”
On Israel, he said the country is nearing its end, and stressed, “Regional nations have awakened but the global arrogance intends to sow discord among countries in the region.”
“The Iranian people and regional nations are unhappy with the existence of the Zionist regime (Israel) and are against it. They will continue their fight until the defeat of the US and Zionist regime in the region,” Ahmadinejad restated.
According to the report, he said the “bullying powers” have supported dictators for the past 50 years, and that they are “seeking to sow dissension among regional people in an attempt to save Israel.”
He also warned against plots to “disintegrate Jordan.”
