Advisor to the Supreme Leader on foreign affairs Ali Akbar Velayati said that thanks to the blood of Martyr Soleimani, today the era of the US presence in Iraq and Syria is over, and afterwards with the decision of the Afghan combatants, it is time for the Americans to be expelled from Afghanistan.
Addressing a ceremony commemorating 40 days since martyrdom of Lieutenant General Soleimani in Qom, Velayati said life and martyrdom of the dignified combatant of Islam and Revolution were full of blessings and his assassination by the Americans revealed zenith of their idiocy.
The Americans thought that with the assassination of Martyr Soleimani, resistance front will fade away, he said, noting that funeral procession of Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes was unparalleled and exposed the Americans' miscalculations.
Iraqi people's demonstrations removed their internal differences and they unitedly chanted slogan of 'Death to Israel' which was not customary in the country, he said.
Referring to attacks on the US forces and their allies in the region, especially in Afghanistan, Yemen and Syria, after General Soleimani's martyrdom, Velayati said that the Iraqi parliament voted for the US exit.
Condemning 'Deal of the Century' as a stupid and wicked plan, he said that the deal prompted all the Palestinian groups to stand united.
