Leader of the Islamic Revolution (R) and Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir meet in Tehran on June 26, 2011.
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution warns against US and Western plots hatched with the aim of hijacking popular uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa.
In a meeting with Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir in the Iranian capital, Tehran, on Sunday, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei hailed the Islamic awakening in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya and said the recent popular movements run counter to the interests and demands of the US, West and Zionists.
The Leader underlined the importance of remaining vigilant against plots hatched by the US and its allies to stop popular movements in the region and said, “The US and West will not be able to do anything in the short run.”
Ayatollah Khamenei said the recent popular movements in the region were the start of a “fundamental development” in Muslim and regional countries and expressed hope that “we will witness a strong Islamic alliance in North Africa in the near future.”
The Leader pointed to the very important developments in Egypt and said the US and the Zionist regime (Israel) have lost their strong base in Egypt.
The US and its allies are making efforts to maybe succeed in derailing revolutionary movements in the long run, Ayatollah Khamenei said and called for efforts to prevent such events.
Referring to developments in Libya, the Leader said, “We are seriously concerned about the situation in Libya because the movement of the Libyan nation is a serious and real uprising, and the West is adamant on preventing this real popular movement from bearing fruit.”
“The West is seriously fearful of the establishment of an Islamic government in Libya, [which is situated] near Europe and want to prevent it [from happening].”
The Leader pointed to the West's pressure on Sudan and stressed, “The Islamic Republic of Iran supports the Islamic establishment, government and nation of Sudan, which are determined to maintain their independence and territorial integrity.”
Ayatollah Khamenei praised the resistance of the Sudanese government and people against the US, Zionist regime and West's conspiracies and pressure.
He urged all Sudanese factions and groups to remain “vigilant and united.”
President Bashir, for his part, expressed gratitude for Iran's support for Sudan and said, “The Sudanese government and nation resisted against these [Western] pressures and are optimistic about the future.”
