Tehran, Iran, May 30 The United States will fall from its global stature and global power will end up in the hands of Asian countries in the next decade, a top Iranian official said on Tuesday.
The next decade is the decade of the demise of the American empire, secretary-general of the State Expediency Council Mohsen Rezai said in a meeting with the North Korean ambassador to Iran. His remarks were carried by the official news agency.
The future of the world belongs to Asian countries, Rezai, who for more than a decade headed the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), said.
Eastern and Asian powers can ascertain future global events with their abundant resources and potentials, he said.
China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea have a pivotal role in this movement and can, while uniting and standing firm on their principles, commence an Asian movement in international relations, he added.
The U.S.-led wars on Iraq and Afghanistan brought Washingtons weaknesses to light since it is in need of the Islamic Republic of Iran to free itself from problems in the region, especially in Afghanistan and Iraq, Rezai said.
He said that the U.S. was unable to reach its goals for the Middle East, adding that free nations of the world would continue to stand firm against pressures by Washington.
Rezai described Tehran-Pyongyang relations as long-term and friendly, adding, The two countries can by cooperating with each other play a constructive role in global events.
