US, powers not serious in fighting terrorism - Khamenei

Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev stressed the lack of sincerity in dealing with the issue of terrorism and fighting this heinous phenomenon, Irna reported.

'Some powers, specially the US, are not sincere and serious, in their alleged fight against terrorism, but Muslim countries can shoe away this threat from the Muslim world through sincere cooperation,' Ayatollah Khamenei said during the meeting with President Nazarbayev while underlining the need for boosting cooperation between the two countries in different political, economic and international fields as well as fighting terrorism.

The Leader described the US help to the Daesh (ISIS) in Iraq as an example of insincere confrontations among different alliances to fight terrorism, and said, 'They divide terrorism into two categories of good and bad in order to justify their double-standard encounter with terrorism.

Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to the European nationality of the perpetrators of the terrorist acts in Europe and also the high presence of these people in terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq, and said, 'These realities show the lack of seriousness of the West, specially the Americans in fighting terrorism.'

The Supreme Leader described the present world as tempestuous, and said, 'The Muslim countries today are on the one hand facing the threat of terrorist groups that are operating in the name of Islam and in fact against Islam and Muslims and on the other hand some western powers are not willing to see the unity of Muslim countries beside each other.'

Ayatollah Khamenei said that confronting the threat of terrorism and dual-track approach of the big powers needs boosting cooperation among Muslim countries within logical and rational framework of policies.

'We feel Muslim countries as our brothers; Iran and Kazakhstan have similar stances on many global issues,' he added.

Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to cooperation between Iran and Kazakhstan in international bodies, and said, 'The two countries' economic and trade relations are at a low level despite having common religion, history and culture and abundance of capacities.

'We welcome boosting cooperation between the two countries in different political, economic and transport fields as well as collaboration in the field of legal regime of joint sea domain,' he added.

During the meeting attended by President Hassan Rouhani, President Nazarbayev described Iran as a great, powerful and reliable neighbor, and said, 'The two countries have many capacities for the expansion of relations and we reach agreements on important economic and trade programs which will result in the expansion of mutual cooperation.'

For his part, Nazarbayev described terrorism as a serious threat, saying the campaigns by Western states against legitimate regional governments are to blame for the scourge of terrorism and the unbridled flow of refugees to Europe.

The Kazakh president also pointed to Ayatollah Khamenei's call for unity in the Muslim world, saying Islam is the religion of progress, unity and fight on terrorism.
