Fmr Pakistan envoy lauds Iran's major role in region

Islamabad, March 4, IRNA - Former Pakistani ambassador to the UAE praised Iran's role in the Middle East region, adding that no doubt Iran will come out victorious against all American conspiracies.

In an interview with the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), Air Marshal (rtd) Syed Qaiser Hussain said that US President Donald Trump has adopted a very aggressive policy towards Iran, but he is not aware that Iranian nation is very strong and will never bow down to American hegemonic policies.

Former Vice Chief of Pakistan Air Force (PAF) said that since the success of the Islamic Revolution in 1979, Iran has always stood up for its national interests and never accepted the American hegemony.

The analyst expressing his views said Iran has and will play a positive role in the region. He added that Iran is a peaceful country and is making efforts to bring peace in the area.

Syed Qaiser Hussain said that Iran is working for its national interests and adopts a logical approach towards world issues. “Iran is a very powerful country and this is not acceptable to Americans and Zionists”, he noted.

The diplomat went on to say that Muslims have to be united for the peace in the Muslim world. He regretted that a proxy war is going on in Syria but Iran has adopted a positive approach by supporting the government of Syria which is on the right side.

“An organized campaign is going on against the government of Syria and every day we come across fake photographs of the situation over there portraying wrong image of the Syrian government which is trying to protect its own people from Western conspiracies,” the analyst noted.

Syed Qaiser Hussain said that Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and UAE are all pro-American states and towing the American policies for their own interests. “Sultan Air Base of the US is in Saudi Arabia and there are many other important bases in Bahrain and UAE so these countries cannot go against the interests of the US,” he said.

The analyst said that there is no comparison between the role of Iran and the US against terrorism. “Iran is trying to eliminate terrorism whereas the US is the reason for the spread of terrorism,” he said.

He added that it is the US that has airlifted the people of Daesh from Iraq and brought them in Afghanistan to create instability in the area.

“We think that Iran is the only Muslim country that is resisting the American policies in the region and will come out victorious,” he said.
