And increased my mandate, that "ending the military presence of the United States in Iraq will lead to the end of its presence in Syria," stressing that "the Americans will leave these two countries soon."

My state stressed that "Iran is the first force in the region, whether the enemy wants it or not," adding that "the line extending from Tehran to Baghdad, Damascus, Beirut and Palestine is the resistance front line and this line will continue."

He believed that "the Iraqi Prime Minister-designate Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi will gain confidence soon, a warrior and a prominent person with a clean hand and a believer," as he put it.
