Description of Selected News: 'Iran Says Greater Mideast Initiative Aimed At Strengthening Israel


KHARTOUM (IRNA) -- Iran's Minister of Foreign Affairs Kamal Kharrazi said here on Friday, 'Main objective of the U.S. Greater Middle East Initiative is stabilizing Israel's status in the region and providing for the expansion of the Zionists' hegemony.' Kharrazi who is in Sudan added, 'The foreign powers are meanwhile after exertion of military and political pressure over the regional countries to secure greater interests for themselves.' The Iranian foreign minister made the comments in a meeting with his Sudanese counterpart Mustafa Uthman Ismail, adding, 'The real intentions of those who talk about the Greater Middle East Initiative, reforms, and democracy are highly suspicious.' Referring to the prevailing conditions in Iraq and occupied Palestine, he said, 'The presence of outsiders in Iraq is aimed at securing their hegemony over the region and its vital energy resources, and the Israelis, too, are taking full advantage of the U.S. broader presence in the region.' The Iranian foreign minister added, 'The ultimate goal of Washington in Palestine, too, is paving the path for Israel's full hegemony, not only over the Palestinians, but throughout the Islamic world.'"
