US Aggression on Syria Part of its Expansionist Policies: Iran

US Aggression on Syria Part of its Expansionist Policies: Iran

Alwaght- Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said a US-led aggression on Syria on Saturday was a repeat of Washington's use of lies to fulfill its interests in line with its expansionist policies. 

 “The US has shown that it takes such measures in various countries from time to time based on lies and hollow pretexts in line with its expansionist policies to achieve its goals and is likely to repeat this behavior,” he said Monday.

The US, Britain, and France used an alleged chemical attack near Damascus to hit several targets in Syria early Saturday, ignoring a demand by the Syrian government that inspectors visit the site to investigate the allegation.

Qassemi said the coordinated attacks were against international principles and a testimony to the "expansionist and warmongering" policies of the United States.

"Today, everything that is seen in the abnormal situation of the region and the current world is due to the blatantly strategic mistakes of the United States over the past decades, which has always made the region suffer from a serious instability," he said.

The spokesman also stressed that "the aggressive action of the three Western countries in Syria will have no bearing on the regional and global policies of the Islamic Republic of Iran."

He further noted that the airstrikes were aimed at creating a rift between Iran, Russia and Turkey as the three guarantor states of ceasefire in Syria.

In his other remarks Qassemi referred to an Israeli attack on the Syrian T-4 air base near Homs earlier this month, that left seven Iranians dead, say that act of aggression will be met with a response.

"Gone are the days when the Zionist regime would hit and run and the resistance forces in the region are able to respond to this crime at an appropriate time," he said.

"The occupying regime will sooner or later receive the necessary responses to its recent crime and aggression, and they will regret their misdeed," Qassemi added.
