Speaker: US Authorities Lack Correct Understanding of Region

Addressing a conference on 'Iran and British Colonialism' here in Tehran on Tuesday, Larijani pointed to the historical records of London and Washington's interference in the region and Iran, and said that while Washington played the major role in backing the former Iranian dictator, Mohammad Reza Shah, Britain played a complementary role to help the US and Shah against the Iranian nation. He pointed to the Islamic Revolution that toppled Shah in Iran in February 1979, and noted, "The Islamic Revolution was a political shock for the US and Britain." "Today the US failures in Afghanistan and Iraq have removed my doubts about the fact that the US authorities lack a correct understanding" of the region, he added. He noted Washington's failed policies and performance in the course of the recent revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia, and stated, "They (American) sent a special envoy to resolve the Egyptians' problems, but the people of Egypt rejected him." "They (Americans) tried to bring to power Omar Suleiman (Hosni Mubarak's ally and vice-president), but people stood against him. Finally, they formed a military council which has no clear and specified place in Egypt's Constitution," the Iranian lawmaker said, underlining that the US is seeking to hijack the Egyptian revolution, while people are standing firm against Washington. He further pointed to the United States' 150-million-dollar financial assistance to Egypt's military council, and said, "... Americans do not have a correct understanding and are still conducting their calculations based on their wrong concepts."
