Posted by Fredsvenn den august 23, 2012
Iran vil øke motstanden mot Vesten og deres allierte som svar på deres forsøk på å styrte Syrias president Bashar Asad. Denne instruksen har vært gitt av Irans leder ayatolla Ali Khamenei om man tror publikasjonen i The Daily Telegraph.
Khamenei har samtidig oppfordret regjeringen til å forsvare landet fra konsekvenser av internasjonale sanksjoner. «Først og fremst gjelder dette finans- og oljekjemisk økonomisektorer», sa han på et møte med presidenten Mahmoud Ahmadinejad og regjeringsmedlemmer.
Det er sanksjoner mot Iran som ble innført av FNs Sikkerhetsråd til gjengjeld til landets realisering av atomprogrammet. USA og EU har også nektet å kjøpe Irans olje noe som alvorlig skader landets økonomi.
Syria is Iran’s main ally in the Middle East and both countries consider Israel to be their political arch-foe.
«Iran and Syria have a joint mission to create a new world order on the basis of justice, humanity and belief in God,» Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told visiting Syrian Parliament Speaker Mahmoud al-Abrash in 2010.
«At the current juncture, the role of Iran and Syria is historic and therefore bilateral cooperation should be increased,» Mehr news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.
The semi-official FARS news agency reported that Ahmadinejad said that «the resistance of nations including Iran and Syria has caused a deadlock in policies of Arrogant System in economic, political and military sections.»
He also turned to presence of bulling powers’ forces in Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen and said, «The enemies’ plots will harm themselves.»
Iran’s president added that he felt that the United States would eventually be forced by the two states to stop interference in the region and withdraw its military personnel.
Mehr quoted the Syrian speaker as saying that Iran and Syria would side by side move towards continued resistance and fight against world imperialism.
According to Western intelligence officials, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei gave the order to the elite Quds Force unit following a recent emergency meeting of Iran’s National Security Council in Tehran held to discuss a specially-commissioned report into the implications for Iran of the Assad regime’s overthrow.
Damascus is Iran’s most important regional ally, and the survival of the Assad regime is regarded as vital to sustaining the Iranian-backed Hizbollah militia which controls southern Lebanon.
The report, which was personally commissioned by Mr Khamenei, concluded that Iran’s national interests were being threatened by a combination of the U.N. sanctions imposed over Iran’s nuclear programme and the West’s continuing support for Syrian opposition groups attempting to overthrow the Syrian government.
Intelligence officials say the report concludes that Iran «cannot be passive» to the new threats posed to its national security, and warns that Western support for Syrian opposition groups was placing Iran’s «resistance alliance» in jeopardy, and could seriously disrupt Iran’s access to Hizbollah in Lebanon.
It advised that the Iranian regime should demonstrate to the West that there were «red lines» over what it would accept in Syria, and that a warning should be sent to «America, the Zionists, Britain, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and others that they cannot act with impunity in Syria and elsewhere in the region.»
