The Iranian President, Ibrahim Raisi, spoke about his country's role in Iraq.
"The result of seeking hegemony is bloodshed, instability and, ultimately, defeat and flight," the Iranian president said.
"Today the United States cannot get out of Iraq and Afghanistan but it has been driven out. At the same time, it is the oppressed people, from Palestine and Syria to Yemen and Afghanistan, as well as the American taxpayers, who are paying the price for this lack of rationality," he added.
Raisi continued, "Had it not been for the strength and role of Iran alongside the government and peoples of Syria and Iraq, as well as the noble efforts of the martyrs Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis and General Qassem Soleimani, ISIS (fighters) today would have been Europe's neighbors in the Mediterranean region. Of course, ISIS will not be the last wave of extremism."
The Iranian president said that "the US military presence in Syria and Iraq is "the biggest obstacle to the establishment of democracy and the will of states,"
stressing that "freedom does not fit into the backpacks of soldiers coming from outside the region." Ended 29/A43
