Raisi: Supporting rioters, terrorists not in interest of US, West
The Iranian President instructs the Foreign Ministry to take the necessary measures to neutralize and tackle conspiracies that are orchestrated from abroad.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi stressed on Sunday that the US and the West's support for rioters and terrorists will not be in their interests.
Speaking in a cabinet meeting, Raisi pointed to the recommendations of Iranian leader Sayyed Ali Khamenei on Saturday and said the 13th government is committed to offering quality services to the Iranian nation and will make its utmost effort in solving economic problems.
The Iranian President pointed out that the enemies of Iran have been armed to teeth in waging a war against the Iranian people in an attempt to disrupt and undermine the progress and achievements of the country.
Raisi underlined that confronting rioters and punishing them within the framework of the law, as well as protecting citizens and their property from terrorists, is everyone's demand and must be implemented urgently.
He affirmed that the Iranian government makes double efforts in order to provide quality services to Iranians, adding that the security, administrative, and judicial bodies burden a great responsibility for ensuring the safety of the people and safeguarding the assets of the country.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Raisi pointed to the enemy's propaganda against Iran through fabricating false news and narratives about recent riots, stressing the need for media outlets and responsible organizations to provide intelligent, transparent, accurate, and timely information to the public.
The Iranian President also instructed the Foreign Ministry to take the necessary measures through diplomatic and legal means to neutralize and tackle conspiracies that are orchestrated from outside the country.
It is noteworthy that in mid-November, the Secretary of Iran's High Council for Human Rights, Kazem Gharibabadi, called out the UK government for backing anti-Iran Persian-speaking media outlets that are carrying out a campaign against the country "completely contrary to laws and regulations."
Gharibabadi requested an investigation to be carried out by the British communications regulator Ofcom for such violations made by the UK government, adding that the role played by media outlets in inciting riots in Iran and social and security turmoil is equal to or exceeds the role played by the terrorist groups.
In late October, the Iranian Intelligence Ministry and the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps' intelligence wing revealed that intelligence obtained by Tehran indicates that the CIA and allied intelligence services planned a conspiracy in Iran against the Islamic Republic.
Earlier this month, the Iranian government announced sanctions on four US institutions and 10 personnel, including the CIA, for inciting riots in the Islamic Republic and interfering in its internal affairs.
