Tehran, Iran, May 26 – Iran’s former President Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani accused the United States and Britain on Friday of lying about working to bring about democracy in Iraq.

“The heads of the two countries occupying Iraq admitted during their interview yesterday of having made a mistake in occupying Iraq”, Rafsanjani, who chairs the State Expediency Council, told worshippers in Tehran. His sermon was broadcast live on state television.

U.S. President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair acknowledged on Thursday that there were “missteps” and “mistakes” in their war on Iraq.

“Blair’s expression of regret for removing the Baathists from Iraq shows that they were after something else in Iraq and their claim of supporting democracy in Iraq was a lie and demagogy”, Rafsanjani said.

“Luckily, with the vigilance of Iraqi officials and clerics, the occupiers are being sent back step by step”, he added.
