Khamenei: U.S. and Saudi officials' remarks about Iraq contradict their covert intentions. At a time when ISIS occupied Mosul, they provided the militants with money, arms and equipment and that Iraq has overcome ISIS, they pretend to seek friendship.
Khamenei: Human assets and rich underground resources in Iraq will make it the most influential nation in the Arab world. The U.S. and its cohorts in region oppose Iraq's current democratic setting, figures and trends ruling the nation and consider them detrimental to their interests.
Khamenei: If the Iraqi government and officials follow the U.S., they won't have problems with them. But the current Iraqi government, parliament and political activists are unfavorable to the U.S., thus they devise plots to push this assembly out of the political scene in Iraq.
Khamenei: The U.S. pursues goals beyond simply maintaining military presence in Iraq. They seek enduring presence and interests as well as forming a government like the military states that existed during the early years of occupying Iraq.
Khamenei: U.S. military presence in Iraq is detrimental to countries and nations of the region. You should take actions to make the U.S. withdraw its troops from Iraq because wherever they have had enduring presence, forcing them out has become problematic.
