Iran parliament speaker calls terrorists 'unpaid army of US'

Tehran, Jan 30, IRNA – Since the terrorists are the unpaid army of the US in the region, it is very unlikely that the US let the terror issue be resolved, said the speaker of Majlis (Iranian Parliament) on Wednesday.

'They just relocate the terrorists from one place to another,' Ali Larijani said in a meeting with Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, Cooperation and Community at People's National Assembly of Algeria Abdelhamid Si Afif.

'While the terrorists have been fully suppressed in Iraq and partially in Syria, they relocated them from one point to another,' the Iranian parliament speaker added.

Saying that keeping terrorism in the region is beneficial to the US, Larijani added, 'This way, they can both defame Islam and have an unpaid army to disrupt countries in line with US policies; they are now focusing on certain parts of Asia and North Africa.'

He said that the Yemen War was not beneficial to Muslims whatsoever, and added that the Islamic world is suffering from some complications, during which some of the Islamic rulers didn't show any wisdom and prudence, which increased the costs of many events.

'The Yemen War has been going on for some years with no results for the Islamic countries.'

Referring to American 'phony plan' of the Deal of the Century, he said, 'They intend to limit the issue of Palestine to the issue of Gaza Strip and find a solution for the Palestinian refugees and purge Eastern Quds (Jerusalem), which is a huge act of treason.'

'On the other hand, they give money to the countries that host the Palestinian refugees so that they won't return to their country. They started the project of normalizing Zionist regime's ties with the Arab countries, which is a black mark for the Islamic countries.'

Larijani added that it is clear that they cannot succeed inasmuch as the Muslim nations have awakened.

Thanking Algeria for its support for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), aka Iran Deal, he said, 'We had an agreement, but when Donald trump took office, he abrogated the deal. We will handle it; they shouldn’t think that they can do whatever they want with bullying.'

He said that Iran and Algeria have similar behaviors and thanked Algiers for its stances about Palestine.

'Regarding the economic ties between Tehran and Algiers, there are numerous ideas, especially in housing and industry.'

He also stressed reinforcement of parliamentarian relations between the two countries.

Si Afif, the chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of Algeria, said in the meeting that the agreement that was signed in 2006 between the two legislation bodies is strengthening the relations.

'Since we have the same challenges, we need to increase our ties.'

Criticizing foreign intervention in domestic affairs of countries, he said, 'No one can dictate to us how to treat our brother and friend counties.'

He also said that his country believes that the solution of the crises is Syria, Yemen, and Libya is national dialog.

'We also condemned the oppressive sanctions against Iran.'

Si Afif had already held meetings with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif, Vice President for Parliamentary Affairs Hossein-Ali Amiri and the Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs Heshmatollah Falat-pisheh.
