TEHRAN - Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has said that Iran has one hundred indisputable documents that prove the United States’ involvement in terrorist actions and assassination plots in Iran and the region and will release them to the public.
The Leader made the remarks during a meeting with thousands of students in Tehran on Wednesday, ahead of the 13th of Aban.
The 13th of Aban in the Iranian calendar, which corresponds to November 4, is Iran’s national day of struggle against the global arrogance (imperialist powers) and the anniversary of the university students’ seizure of the U.S. embassy in Tehran, which was called the Den of Spies, in 1979. It is also the anniversary of the exile of the late Imam Khomeini, the Founder of the Islamic Republic, in 1964.
“We have one hundred indisputable documents that show the role of the United States in directing assassinations and terrorists in Iran and the region. We will discredit the U.S. and the self-proclaimed supporters of human rights and the campaign against terrorism before the world,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
In reference to the U.S. claim that Iran had plotted to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador to Washington, he said, “The U.S. government, amid growing problems and at the climax of the widespread and popular Wall Street movement, tried to accuse the Islamic Republic of Iran of being involved in a meaningless, irrational, and wrong terrorist action through fabricating a ridiculous scenario.
“But all rational individuals and experts in the world rejected the allegation after reflecting upon this ridiculous scenario.”
Such a scenario was fabricated in order to pressure the Islamic Republic and deflect attention from the protests on Wall Street, he noted.
“They are seeking to accuse the most respectable combatant elements of the Islamic Republic of Iran, while today the U.S. is a major terrorist in the world,” he stated.
In addition, he said that uprisings against Western liberal democracy in the U.S. and other countries are a sign of the collapse of the capitalist system.
The U.S. and other Western governments might be able to put down some protests, “but this fire cannot be put out,” he stated.
Commenting on regional developments, the Leader said that the U.S. is facing defeat in Iraq, Afghanistan, and North Africa and has no option other than leaving the region.
“Nations in the world and the region clearly observed the United States’ hypocritical approach to developments in Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya,” he said.
