Bandar Abbas, Hormozgan, April 12, IRNA -- President of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday criticized the military expedition planned by the US and its western allies into the regional countries.
Addressing the provincial gathering in Bandar-e Jask in Hormozgan, President Ahmadinejad said they aim to sow discord among the regional states in order to wage war and sell their weapons at high prices after that.
They also targeted domination of eastern bloc, including Russia and China, by their military expedition into Afghanistan, said the president.
Their claims over ensuring security in Afghanistan are the downright lie, noted Iran’s president.
The Iranian president added they settle military equipment in our region and claim that they have regional interests.
About the national interests, the president stressed the need to make effort to building the Islamic Republic of Iran.
About the issue of employment, he said the government is seriously pursuing it.
President flew to the southern province of Hormozgan on Tuesday to pay his fourth round of provincial tour there.
