Takfiri threats to boomerang on backers: Leader

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has warned that the threats posed by the Takfiri groups will eventually backfire on their regional supporters.

“Unfortunately, some regional countries are not aware of the danger that these Takfiri groups will pose to them in the future and continue supporting these groups,” said Ayatollah Khamenei in a meeting with visiting Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber Al Sabah in Tehran on Monday.

Some regional states are currently backing the crimes and carnage perpetrated by the Takfiri groups in Syria and elsewhere, said the Leader, adding, “but in the not-too-distant future, these groups will turn against their very supporters, which will, at last, have to destroy the groups at a very high cost.”

Ayatollah Khamenei further stated that the Islamic Republic has always sought “healthy relations” with its Persian Gulf littoral neighbors, adding, “The security of this region is contingent upon healthy and good ties among all regional states.”

The Leader also said the ground is prepared for the expansion of economic relations between Iran and Kuwait, adding, “A new chapter should be opened in Iran-Kuwait economic ties.”

The Kuwaiti emir, for his part, said that his country is fully ready to open a new page in its economic relations with the Islamic Republic, saying Tehran and Kuwait City agreed to upgrade mutual economic and trade cooperation during his trip to Tehran.

He also expressed hope that the conflict in Syria will be resolved through peaceful means and based on the Syrian nation’s will.
