A senior Iranian military commander on Wednesday said the global US empire was "coming to an end," as its footholds around the globe were growing weaker.
Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) commander Hossein Salami said leaders throughout the Muslim world were no longer "stretching a red carpet" for American officials, indicating that Washington's influence in these areas was growing weaker, according to the semi-official Fars news agency.
"Any enemy plot will entail an unexpected ending for him and this is due to the Iranian nation's reliance on religious and Islamic beliefs," the commander said.
"The [Islamic] revolution has changed the balance of power to such an extent that no security and political equation in the Muslim world is possible without winning Iran's satisfaction."
