TEHRAN, Jan. 05 (MNA) – Not leaving the region, the US will experience another Vietnam,Top Advisor to Iranian Leader Ali Akbar Velyati warned on Sunday.

He named Lit. Gen. Soleimani as the axis of resistance in Yemen, Iraq and Syria, adding that he was the one who rescued Baghdad from ISIL and Damascus from Salafi groups. 

"He had the closest relation with the Russian President," he added.

"Americans took a foolish measure and assassinated him," he said, "They mush leave the region."
