Islamic movement not be stopped by Rabbani death: Velayati

Velayati said the enemies of regional nations, by undermining security in Afghanistan, are trying to perpetuate their presence in the country. After the assassinations of high-ranking Iranian officials during the early years of the Islamic revolution “we found that the Western countries, particularly the United States, were directly or indirectly involved in the assassinations”.

Supreme Leader’s top advisor Ali Akbar Velayati has said those who think the Islamic movement will be stopped by elimination of some figures like former Afghan president Burhanuddin Rabbani, are totally mistaken, the Fars News Agency reported on Sunday.

Velayati made the remarks in a meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai in Kabul on Friday.

Heading an Iranian delegation, Velayati visited Afghanistan to attend Rabbani’s funeral.

Rabbani who headed Afghanistan’s High Peace Council was martyred inside his Kabul home on Tuesday afternoon in a suicide bombing.

Velayati said the enemies of regional nations, by undermining security in Afghanistan, are trying to perpetuate their presence in the country.

After the assassinations of high-ranking Iranian officials during the early years of the Islamic revolution “we found that the Western countries, particularly the United States, were directly or indirectly involved in the assassinations”.

In the meeting, Karzai also thanked the Supreme Leader, the president, the Majlis speaker, and the Iranian nation for the expression of sympathy and said the participation of the Iranian delegation in the funeral ceremony is a sign of a brotherly relationship between the two countries.

The martyrdom of Rabbani was a great loss for Afghanistan, and he became a “martyr of peace”, Karzai noted.
