Ali Khamenei accuses US, France and Britain of crime


The Iranian delegation would hold talks with Syrian senior officials to discuss a host of political issues, including the recent missile strike launched on Syria by the USA and its allies, Britain and France. "The American, French presidents and the British Prime Minister are criminal", he said.

The three countries, Ayatollah Khamenei said, "will achieve nothing and make no benefit, as they have been in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan in the past few years, and committed such crimes but have not profited from them".

The source, who spoke to the newspaper anonymously, said it was the first time for Israel to attack Iranian targets in Syria, describing the move as the start of a "new phase".

"Despite the involvement of numerous large global banks in past large-scale sanctions violations no banker other than Mr. Atilla has ever been charged for such conduct, much less sent to prison", Atilla's lawyers said in the latter.

According to Tehran based Pres TV, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that the "aggressive" United States move to carry out military strikes against Syria reveals that Washington has "direct ties" with terrorists.

On Saturday, the UN Security Council rejected a resolution put forward by Russian Federation condemning the strikes by the US, Britain, and France.

Russia's Ministry of Defense claimed Syria's air defense systems intercepted 71 missiles launched in the airstrikes. "We have no doubt that Hezbollah acts as an extension of Iran's will".

Since the chemical gas attack on Douma, the regime in Tehran has been quiet. He criticized the U.S, Britain and France for declining to wait until after the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons completes its own investigation there.

"An act of aggression against a sovereign state that is on the frontline in the fight against terrorism was committed without a mandate from the UN Security Council and in violation of the UN Charter and norms and principles of worldwide law", Putin said.

The strikes were targeted to inflict maximum damage on sites linked to chemical weapons development.
