Sanctioning Iran is a very big mistake: Louis Farrakhan

TEHRAN, Nov. 04(MNA) – The leader of the religious group Nation of Islam (NOI) has described the US policy to impose sanctions on Iran as a big mistake, adding that the United States is no longer able to exercise its unilateralism.

Louis Farrakhan made the remarks in a meeting with the Secretary of Iran's Expediency Council Mohsen Rezaei in Tehran on Sunday, during which he also called the United States a big liar. 

Farrakhan expressed happiness with his visit to Iran, saying the goal of his visit is to demonstrate real friendship with Iran.

Meanwhile, he said that the Americans have always been plotting against Iran and are seeking to create an internal enemy in Iran.

“I understand how the enemies have plotted against the Iranian people and I would like to stay alongside you to stop their plots,” he asserted.

The American NOI leader further condemned the US President Donald Trump’s support for the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman in the case of Khashoggi murder, saying that Trump and his son in law have investments in Saudi Arabia.

He called for unity among all Muslims in the face of enemies’ plots, saying “Satan seeks to divide Muslims and wants them to kill each other, while God tells us in the Quran to be united.”  

The American religious leader went on to condemn Americans’ policy to use others as an instrument to reach their own goals, noting that the Americans did not remain loyal to the promises they had made to the domestic Indians.

He also noted that the Americans also betrayed former Libyan leader colonel Ghaddafi and finally toppled him, as they had done so to Saddam Hussain before.

"Today, I warn the American government that sanctioning Iran is a big mistake," he said adding that the United States cannot continue its unilateralism.

Mohsen Rezaei, for his part, called for unity among all Muslims and formation of a anti-hegemonic movement in the West.

The Secretary of Iran's Expediency Council noted as the US’s Donald Trump has put the Iranian nation in trouble, the Muslims need to unite and create an international movement.

He also said Iran sees the black Americans as part of the Islamic Revolution, pointing out that the after the seizure of the US embassy in Tehran back in 1979, the late Leader Iran Ayatollah Khomeini ordered the immediate release of black Americans and the women among the captives, which meant that the Islamic Revolution saw no problem with the black people of America.
