Middle East is suffering from lack of native models of democracy, a senior Iranian official said.
The Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's Advisor for International Affairs Ali Akbar Velayati said Aug.15 that "totalitarian regimes are resisting recent democratic developments in the region including Iraq", IRNA reported.
He said that elite political groups have not proposed solutions to the recent demands for democracy in the region and it resulted in spread of chaos in the region.
The official warned about certain powers' efforts to provoke sectarian violence in the region.
"Unfortunately, West, US and the Zionist regime (Israel) manipulated the chaos in the Muslim world for their political purposes", Velayati said.
He added that the inexperienced rulers of certain regional states tried to take revenge on the resistance axis but they have failed and they will see the consequences.
Today, the resistance axis is stronger than the past and after the nuclear deal between Tehran and the world powers, Iran has more power to support it, Velayati asserted.
Iran calls Hamas, Hizbullah and other Shia groups "resistance axis against Zionism".
