Larijani: World Powers Should Respect Muslim Nations' Demands

"Muslims are seeking their own rights and the international powers should respect their historical demand," Larijani said in a meeting with India's National Security Advisor (NSA) Shivshankar Menon here in Tehran on Tuesday.

Stressing that the regional people no more trust the world powers, he said that given the positions taken by the western countries on the recent regional developments, the people in the region should be watchful of the West's opportunistic approach and attitude towards these developments.

Larijani described the recent developments in the region as the result of the long-term colonial behavior of the West in the region, and said, "Establishment of real democracies and populism is the only way to solve many regional problems."

Inspired by the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt, people in Libya, Yemen and Bahrain and now in Saudi Arabia have been staging massive street protests for weeks to press the dictatorial regimes in their countries to step down.

Earlier, an Iranian top military official had also cautioned that the western powers are seeking to exercise their capitalist strategies and policies in the wealthy and Muslim states which possess abundant oil wells and resources.

"The reality is that the US wants to stage a military intervention to find control over Libya's oil wells as it did in Iraq with the Iraqi oil," Chief of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firouzabadi said Saturday.

Firouzabadi also warned the US officials of the fatal consequences and aftermaths of Washington's military intervention in Libya.

"Any kind of US measure and interference in Libya will not only stabilize Islamic Revolutions in the region and further clarify their path and direction, but also cause a severe blow to the US economy and increase their (Americans') debts and budget deficit," Firouzabadi cautioned.
