Supreme Leader's fatwa defeats US, Zionist regime- Afghan leader

Kabul, Oct 8, IRNA – Leader of the Islamic Movement of Afghanistan Mulawi Muhammad Mukhtar Mofleh said Tuesday that the fatwa of the Supreme Leader against nuclear weapons has defeated the US and Zionist regime leaving no room for any further claims.

Speaking to IRNA exclusively, the political leader said the fatwa (religious verdict) of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei prohibiting nuclear weapons stemmed from the Islamic teachings and would have international impacts.

Ayatollah Khamenei’s ‘heroic flexibility’ and his fatwa have isolated the White House foiling its claims against Tehran, Mofleh stressed.

Referring to Iran as a powerful and influential regional state with great impacts on international equations, he said US has no option but accepting Iran’s right to pursue nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.

Criticizing double standard policy of certain countries towards the Zionist regime, the political leader asked, how could the international community allow the Zionist regime, which possesses a large nuclear arsenal without being a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), to threaten Iran which is a member of the UN nuclear watchdog and is entitled to utilize peaceful nuclear energy based on international regulations.

Mofleh referred to Israel as a regime that threatens the international and regional security and endangers the whole world.

He also criticized West’s anti-Iran sanctions urging Washington to accept the Iranians legitimate rights.'
