Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 12 / Trend, A. Tagiyeva, T. Jafarov /
The events in the Middle East reflect the failure of the hegemonic countries' policy in the region, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was quoted by TV channel IRINN while addressing the residents of the city of Kermanshah on Wednesday.
"The former authorities of Egypt, Tunisia and Libya fulfilled the U.S instructions," Khamenei said.
The supreme leader said that the U.S is now trying to regain control over the situation in the region, but without any result.
He stressed that the events in the region have an impact on the processes in Iran.
"If there is a unity, development and security in Iran, it pleases the peoples of the region," he said. However, if there are discords in Iran, as the West wants, it would upset the peoples of the region."
Today Iran's Supreme Leader launched his visit to the province of Kermanshah, where he will hold meetings in different cities.
Many countries in the Middle East and North Africa, particularly Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen, Libya and Syria have been covered with popular discontent since early 2011. This resulted in riots and protests against the existing regimes in these countries. The demonstrations led to the downfall of power in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya. At present, there are fierce struggles between the people and the authorities in Syria and Yemen.
