“Hegemonic powers are making attempts to create divisions in the Muslim world to distract the public opinion from the main enemy that is the Zionist regime," Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani said Thursday.
The official met high-ranking clerics in the holy city of Qom to brief them on Iran's measures to guarantee security in the face of Takfiri terrorism on its doorsteps.
"Thanks to the valuable guidelines of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei Iran has managed to maintain security in and beyond its borders," Shamkhani said during a meeting with Ayatollah Nasser Makarem-Shirazi
The top cleric, for his part, described Takfiri terrorism as a threat to the security of all Muslim nations and humanity, saying Saudi Arabia is “the birthplace and promoter of the Takfiri ideology.”
Daesh and other Takfiri groups are inspired by Wahhabism which is widely preached in the Saudi kingdom and tolerated by its rulers.
