Khamenei urges Muslim nations ‘to unite against US’ – Iran’s TV

Iran’s supreme leader has called on Muslim nations to unite against the United States, Reuters reported. “The Iranian nation has successfully resisted bullying attempts by America and other arrogant powers and we will continue to resist… All Muslim nations should stand united against America and other enemies,” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Thursday. Iran’s top authority criticized US President Donald Trump for saying on Tuesday some countries in the Middle East “wouldn’t last a week” without US protection. “Such remarks are humiliation for Muslims… Unfortunately there is war in our region between Muslim countries. The backward governments of some Muslim countries are fighting with other countries,” Khamenei said. Iran and Saudi Arabia have competed for regional supremacy from Iraq to Syria and Lebanon to Yemen.
