Daesh fruit of foreign countries' support: Senior Iranian official

Tehran, Sep 13, IRNA – Takfiri terrorist group Daesh is the product of foreign countries' support, head of Iran’s Strategic Council on Foreign Relations said.

Kamal Kharrazi made the remarks Tuesday in a meeting with ex-Australian foreign minister Gareth Evans.

Efforts made to change governments by force and military operations are basically false.

'We observed such false measures by US in Libya and Iraq and what is evident in Yemen by Saudi Arabia will have no result but killing innocent people,' Kharrazi said.

Iran and Russia cooperation maintain legitimate cooperation with the Syrian government, he added.

Kharrazi urged UN and European countries to put more pressure on Saudis to stop futile war against Yemenis.

Responding to a question on the future of Daesh, he said Daesh is not going to come to an end but it will change its strategy.

Commenting on Hezbollah strategy, he said Lebanese Hezbollah is going to shoo away the enemies from Lebanon's soil.
