Rafsanjani: US behind CW attack

Thursday, 5 September 2013

Expediency Council Chairman Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani was quoted by an informed source in the latest meeting of the Expediency Council in Tehran on August 31 saying that “the US had prepared everything beforehand (the CW attack) and they themselves have stated that they had known the chemical materials were due to be used three days before the attack took place.” Rafsanjani’s remarks came after certain western media allegedly reported that Rafsanjani blamed the Syrian government for the chemical attacks against the Syrian people. The source, who is an Expediency Council member who requested anonymity, also quoted Rafsanjani as calling on Iranian officials to act vigilantly and wisely in the current situation and to continue support for Syria “Support for Syria and Lebanon should continue since these countries are in the forefront of resistance against Israel”.  Related: Rafsanjani “is not in a position” to determine Iran’s foreign policy
