(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani underlined that the US and Israel are masterminding the crimes and crises fomented in the regional states.
"An important part of the regional crises are guided and plotted by the US and the Zionist regime with the aim of maintaining the security of the rulers of the child-killer regime in Tel Aviv and selling more weapons," Shamkhani said in a meeting with Leader of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq and Vice-Speaker of the Iraqi Parliament Humam al-Hamoudi in Tehran on Monday.
He underscored that close cooperation among the regional countries that have been the victim of terrorism is an inevitable necessity to confront terrorism in the military, security and cultural fields.
Shamkhani also appreciated the Iraqi parliament for its effective role in confronting measures to disintegrate the country.
In relevant remarks in October, Shamkhani blasted the US officials for their unfounded allegations concerning the ongoing campaign against terrorism and extremism in the region, and said that Washington and Tel Aviv are doing their utmost to hinder the resistance front's removal of the terrorist groups.
"The US and the Zionist regime of Israel feel threatened by any balance shift in the region in favor of regional people and governments engaged in the fight against terrorism,” Shamkhani said in a meeting with Deputy Head of Hamas Political Bureau Saleh al-Arouri in Tehran.
The SNSC secretary expressed the hope that Hamas would continue its revolutionary approach and battle against the Tel Aviv regime and said Takfiri groups and their allies have regretfully carried out inhumane and non-Islamic measures which have tarnished the image of Islam.
