Tehran, Iran, Oct. 15 Irans Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accused the United States and Britain of deliberately fomenting unrest in Iraq.
In Iraq the enemies of Islam are trying to pursue a plan to turn people against each other by supporting terrorists and sowing discord among Shiites and Sunnis, Khamenei told a crowd during his Friday prayers sermon in Tehran. His remarks were reported on Sunday in the state-run news agency ISNA.
By creating mistrust among various groups of people, they are trying to change the reality of Iraq from people versus the occupiers to people versus the people, he added.
He accused Britain of continuing to pursue a policy of divide and rule.
Britain has taught this policy to the U.S., he said, adding, However, the reality is that the people of Iraq, Shiites and Sunnis alike, have throughout this countrys history lived together and presently continue in unison to oppose the occupiers.
