Era of US hegemony over, says Iranian Speaker

TEHRAN — Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani underlined that the era of US hegemony is over and the world nations will no more allow others to interfere in their internal affairs. “There was a time when
America wanted to be (the) sole power, but this is over,” Larijani said in Pakistan. He said invasions against Iraq and Afghanistan were the main mistakes committed by the US.
Larijani added that today, the world Muslims are standing on the threshold of great changes.
He said that the United States and Israel have run out of their tricks to weaken the Muslim world. In similar remarks in May 2012, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said developments in the West display that the world’s arrogant powers are definitely on the verge of collapse.
“The front of oppression, arrogance and bullying is weakening and on the verge of demise despite its apparent hue and cry,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
He meantime underlined that despite the arrogant powers’ decline, “the pioneering Iranian nation continues its speedy move towards more progress and materialisation of justice in the decade of progress and justice”. — FNA.
