Jalili Calls on US to Stop Double-Standard Policies towards Nations

Iran's top negotiator Saeed Jalili lashed out at the US for its double-standard policies towards the world nations, and called on Washington to respect the other nations.

The US is working against Syria imposing economic sanction on it and has flooded arms into the country and supports terrorists.

 They (Americans) must stop dual attitudes and respect rationality and wisdom of nations. World people are well monitoring the US attitudes," Jalili, who is in New Delhi for an official visit, said in a press conference in the Indian capital city on Friday,acoording to FNA.

He noted that the US attitude has led to the highest level of public hatred in countries from East Asia to the Horn of Africa, and stated, "The Americans need to make a real change in their policies,"

The senior Iranian security official also said that the US acted in full contradiction to its claims about democracy in its foreign policy, and said that he US made its utmost efforts to counter democracy in Iran and used its utmost capacity to impede the progress of this democracy.

Jalili noted that the US double-standard policies have not been limited only to Iran.

Washington and its Western allies accuse Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons under the cover of a civilian nuclear program, while they have never presented any corroborative evidence to substantiate their allegations. Iran denies the charges and insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.

The Vienna-based UN nuclear watchdog continues snap inspections of Iranian nuclear sites and has reported that all declared nuclear material in Iran has been accounted for, and therefore such material is not diverted to prohibited activities.

Iran, a Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)-signatory, has also repeatedly called for the removal of all weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons, from across the globe.

Israel, the Middle East's sole nuclear power, possesses hundreds of nuclear warheads while it is not a signatory to the NPT or any other international convention.

The Zionist regime has never allowed UN inspectors to visit its nuclear sites or arsenals.


Turkey will pay price for supporting Syria militants: Iran MP

An Iranian lawmaker says the Turkish government will suffer the consequences of its wrong policy of supporting terrorist groups in Syria,according to Press TV.

“Supporting the extremist groups, which have infiltrated into Syria from different countries and have no respect for any principle, is one of the wrong policies that the Ankara government is pursuing,” Aziz Akbarian said on Wednesday.

 He went on to say that training terrorist groups  in Turkey, which come from different ethnic and religious backgrounds, will presage a dangerous future for that country.

On December 25, members of the main Turkish opposition party, the Republican People’s Party, said Libyan and Saudi terrorist groups are freely entering Syria via Turkey's border.

They added that Turkish military escorts and protects the militants on their way to join terrorist groups in Syria.

Analysts believe that the move is part of an anti-Syria plot hatched by the US, Qatar and Saudi Arabia to fuel the unrest in the country by increasing the number of militants fighting against the government.

    “Meddling in the internal affairs of Syria, which has a representative in the United Nations and is independent, is against the international law and will create new precedence for interfering in countries’ internal affairs,” Akbarian pointed out.

The Syrian government says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the armed terrorists are foreign nationals.

He said Turkey, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia are arming and funding militants fighting the Syrian government.

Nasrollah said the crisis in Syria has a political solution and cautioned that the continuation of the Syrian conflict would have dire consequences.

“If Syria’s battle continues, it will be long, bloody and destructive,” the Hezbollah secretary general pointed out.

Nasrallah said Lebanon in the most affected country in the Middle East by the crisis in Syria , calling on Lebanese political factions to refrain from any moves which would throw the country into turmoil.

He went on to say that the influx of Syrian refugees in Lebanon indicates a major humanitarian crisis, which must not be politicized.

The Hezbollah secretary general stressed that division is the most dangerous threat the Muslim nations face, saying Takfiri extremists are the product of the US seeking to sow discord among Muslims.

He said Takfiris are behind countless massacres and bombings in Muslim countries and particularly Syria.

He concluded that despite US and Israeli efforts to “isolate, blacklist and demonize Hezbollah such efforts against the resistance movement will get nowhere.”
