  •  Iran not to allow US to disintegrate Muslim countries: Velayati

The US administration is seeking to undermine unity among the Islamic countries and split their territories, Ali Akbar Velayati, an international adviser to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, warned but at the same time noted that Iran will foil the plot.

“Disintegrating Muslim countries and undermining the Islamic unity are among their (the US officials’) goals,” Velayati said, addressing the opening ceremony of the 35th International Holy Quran Recitation Competition in Tehran on Thursday, Tasnim News Agency reported.

However, the Americans will not succeed in weakening and breaking up the Islamic nations, the top adviser added.

He went on to say that Iran is always siding with the Muslim Ummah (community) and will not allow their borders to change.

“Iran as the flag-bearer of the resistance front will not allow the Muslim countries to disintegrate,” Velayati added.

He further pointed to the emergence of Daesh in the Middle East region and said the West and its allies sought to portray “a frightening and horrible” image of Islam but they have miscalculated.
