Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami, Tehran’s Friday prayers leader
Friday prayers leader Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami has said that the US seeks to spark velvet revolution not only in Iran but in all countries.

“This US policy has been successful in certain countries but it failed in Iran like all the other US conspiracies failed in Iran,” Khatami said during his Friday prayers sermon in Tehran.

“The US has always taken velvet revolution into consideration by promoting Western culture in the society and by causing strife between people and the government through propaganda, organizing certain individuals, psychological warfare and making intentional use of media, intellectual circles, university student’s establishments and feminism movements in order to implement its interfering policies,” he added.

The US spends millions of dollars towards its policies, he said, adding that the confessions made by those arrested who intended to implement US policies in Iran brought anger to the US statesmen and the US media and has forced them to reciprocate.

“The US has had direct and indirect military interference in 25 countries during the past 50 years and it is funny to know that this country claims to establish democracy in the world,” the cleric said.
