Leader warns Saudi, Bahraini rulers of stepping in ‘quagmire’

TEHRAN, Jun. 05 (MNA) – Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei warned that Saudi Arabia and Bahrain are stepping in a quagmire by holding a conference on the so-called ‘Deal of the Century’.

He made the remarks in a sermon of Eid al-Fitr prayers held in Tehran’s Imam Khomeini Mosalla on Wednesday morning.

“The treachery of some Muslim states such as Saudi Arabia and Bahrain set the stage for such an evil plot … I wish Bahraini and Saudi rulers would realize what a quagmire they are stepping in and what damages this will do to their future.”

“The objective of this conference is to materialize America’s wrongful, treacherous and evil scheme for Palestinians which they (Americans) have called ‘the deal of the century.’ However, this will not happen, and this plot will never get off the ground, by divine grace.”

He seized this opportunity to express his thanks to the pious people of Islamic Iran who marked International Quds Day at the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan across the country.

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said that huge turnout of people during International Quds Day rallies and other events will foil malicious objectives orchestrated by enemies against Iran.

Elsewhere, he appreciated people’s efforts to offer help to the victims of recent floods in Iran, adding, "I must remind here, both our brothers and sisters all over the country and our respected officials, not to forget the problems of those affected by the floods."

Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated the significance of persistent relief operations for the victims and said that demands of the flood-hit people should be followed up sincerely, and their problems must be solved with utmost seriousness, especially in those areas such as Khuzestan Province where the temperature is rising and the hot weather of this and the coming season is unbearable.
