TEHRAN, IRAN (Worthy News)-- Any military cooperation between the United States and Iran in Iraq was dismissed by Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khameni. On Sunday, Khamenei stated, "We don't support any foreign interference in Iraq and we're strongly opposed to U.S. interference there."
"The United States is dissatisfied with the result of elections in Iraq and they want to deprive the Iraqi people of their achievement of a democratic system, which they achieved without U.S. interference," Khamenei said.
"What is happening in Iraq is not a war between Shiites and Sunnis. Arrogant powers want to use the remnants of Saddam’s regime and takfiri (ISIS) extremists to deprive Iraq of stability and tranquility," he said. "The real fight is between those who want to bring back a U.S. presence and those who want Iraqi independence." -- Source
