Tehran, Iran, Jun. 09 – A top cleric accused the Iran’s “enemies” on Friday of attempting to create ethnic divisions inside the country.

“Creating divisions and enmity inside the country is on the enemy’s agenda”, Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, who heads the powerful Guardians Council, told Friday prayers worshippers in Tehran. His sermon was aired live on state television.

Iranian authorities have been struggling to put a lid on anti-government demonstrations by the predominantly Azeri population in the north-west of the country and unremitting protests by the Arab minority in the south-west.

Iran’s south-eastern province of Sistan-va-Baluchistan has also been a hotbed of activities against the ruling theocracy with several instances of armed attacks against government officials taking place earlier in the year.
