Top Iranian General warns China Russia and Pakistan against US plot regarding the Region
TEHRAN - Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Army's Air Force Brigadier General Ali Shadmani warned China, Russia and Pakistan of the US attempts to relocate the ISIL terrorists to Afghanistan.
"The enemy is today attempting to continue the same ISIL plot implemented in Iraq and Syria in Afghanistan and this will harm China, Russia and all the regional states," General Shadmani said in an interview with the Persian-language Tasnim news agency on Saturday.
He noted that certain Arab rulers are supporting the US financially and logistically to transfer the ISIL to Afghanistan, saying that they are making their last-ditch efforts to attain their goals but they will not because the ISIL's body has collapsed.
In relevant remarks late in January, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei expressed deep regret over the massacre of the Afghan people in terrorist attacks, blaming the US for the tragedies by transferring the ISIL terrorists to Afghanistan to guarantee its presence in the region.
"The US goal of transferring the ISIL terrorists to Afghanistan is justification of its continued deployment in the region and establishment of security for the Zionist regime," Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing the Iranian seminaries in Tehran.
"The same hands which used the ISIL as a tool to oppress and commit crimes against the people in Syria and Iraq by its creation, is today after transferring the ISIL to Afghanistan after sustaining defeat in those regions, and the recent massacres are actually the start of this plot," he added.
