TEHRAN, Aug. 19 (Press Shia Agency) – Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council Mohsen Rezaei said the United States devoured Britain’s legacy, with the slogan of liberation and with a victorious and conqueror face.
On the occasion of 1953 Iranian coup d’état plotted by US, Rezaei wrote a commentary on his official Instagram account titled “August 19, the day of the disgraceful American coup.”
He underlined that “the United States devoured Britain’s legacy, with the slogan of liberation and with a victorious and conqueror face. Mr. Mosaddegh, like many others, resorted to the United States to rescue from Britain, however, was overthrown by the American coup. Fifty years later, Hillary Clinton apologized to the Iranian people, while the Americans in our time plotted other coups against Morsi in Egypt and Erdogan in Turkey.
“Why relying on unreliable powers instead of on our nation? If we had not relied on people in Iran, how many times had tyranny returned to our home?,” he noted.
