“We have accurate information that, in order to gain dominance over Pakistan and weaken the country’s government and nation, the Americans want to sabotage Pakistan’s nuclear facilities and pave the way for the US’s extended presence and the weakening of the national governing of the people through the lever of the [United Nations] Security Council and some international organizations,” Ahmadinejad said during a press conference on Tuesday.
The Iranian president noted that colonialists used the 9/11 attacks as a pretext to launch their largest military invasion on the [Middle East] region in order to “save from destruction the ailing economy of themselves and the Zionist regime (Israel) as the main base of ultra-modern colonialism.”
The press conference is being held in the Iranian capital of Tehran with the participation of almost 350 reporters and photographers from Iranian and foreign media.
Elsewhere during the conference, the Iranian president said that Washington is planning to gain popularity in the Middle East by pretending to support the people of Bahrain.
The Americans, who have themselves given the carte blanche to confront the people in Bahrain, now want to act as supporters of the Bahraini people and pressure the ruler of this country to make concessions and restore parts of the rights of the people and put an end to the story, Ahmadinejad said.
Through that, the US wants to gain popularity among the nations of the region and show themselves as supporters of the rights of the people, he added.
Ahmadinejad noted that the problem of Bahrain is not between the people and the government, but the US military base is the problem.
He added that “if the people of Bahrain are under pressure today, or if the Bahraini government has to stand against the people of the country to defend the US base,” it is because of the US and its illegitimate interests
