Spox slams USí concern over Iranian presidentís Syria visit

The spokesperson for the Iranian Foreign Ministry described the USí anger and expression of concern about the Iranian presidentís landmark visit to Syria as a natural reaction from an evil regime that has been routed in Syria and the whole region by Iran.

Nasser Kanaani made the remarks in a tweet on Thursday after US State Department deputy spokesperson Vedant Patel claimed that the deepening Tehran-Damascus ties should be of great concern, not just to American allies and regional countries, but to the world more broadly.

Kanaani said that it is natural for Washington to be infuriated because it has suffered a defeat in the region at the hands of the resistance front.

ďThe US has expressed concerns about the Iranian presidentís visit to Syria and its results and described them as malign! Of course, the anger of that evil regime is natural as it has been defeated in Syria and the entire region by Iran and the Axis of Resistance, and it must end its aggressive presence in Syria,Ē he wrote.

ďBe angry and die of this anger,Ē he added, repeating a famous quote by former Iranian Judiciary Chief Mohammad Beheshti, who was martyred in the 1981 bombing of the headquarters of the Islamic Republic Party by the terrorist Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MKO).

Speaking on Wednesday, Patel alleged that Iran and Syria ďhave continued to partake in malign destabilizing activities, not just in their immediate countries, but also in the region.Ē

Washington, he said, has made clear to partners that it does not support others normalizing ties with Damascus, Press TV reported.

The comments came on the same day that Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, heading a high-ranking politico-economic delegation, started his visit to Syria upon an official invitation by his Syrian counterpart Bashar al-Assad.
