Iran’s Foreign Minister: US seeks to change several regional regimes
The United States' aim of carrying out "regime change" will not stop in Baghdad, Iranian Foreign Minister Kamal Kharazi said, accusing Washington of seeking to assure Israel's regional dominance.
Kharazi, quoted by IRNA Sunday, said the US was "seriously preparing for a war against Iraq".
"United States policy is not limited to Iraq, as the Americans want to change a number of regimes in the region so that Israel will be dominant," the foreign minister said.
"Every country must try to prevent the United States from attacking, by resolving the Iraq problem by diplomatic means," he stated.
However, Kharazi said he was confident the US would not attack Iran. "The United States will not attack Iran, because Iran is not Iraq and has not violated any international rules," Kharazi expressed.
"The US is trying to strike blows against us and does constitute a threat for our country, but this does not mean they will attack us militarily." (Albawaba.com)
