Tehran, Feb 25, IRNA -- Majlis (Parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani said on Thursday that the foreign powers have had no role in recent popular uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa.
He made the remarks on the occasion of commemorating Martyr Hossein Kharrazi in Tehran.
Referring to the popular uprisings of the region as a day of judgment for the big powers, Larijani said that today important changes have taken place throughout the world making the US which considered itself the world’s sole super power after the collapse of the former Soviet Union in early 1990s to face political bewilderment.
“The US wants to maintain its prestige as super power on the one hand, while it does not have the capacity for same on the other,” he added.
Majlis speaker noted that Washington supported the dictator regimes in the world as much as it could, but it has to withdraw now step by step in view of the widespread popular uprisings.
