Attacking Iran will lead to ‘unimaginable consequences’: Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani

Ali Akbar Hashemi RafsanjanFormer Iranian President and Expediency Council Chairman Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani has warned that any offensive against Tehran would lead to “unimaginable consequences”.

“The world is struggling with arrogant powers. The powers which have everything, yet they are not satisfied and are seeking to exploit other countries’ resources...,” Rafsanjani told worshippers at Friday prayers.

“Today the Middle East has attracted their attentions and their greedy eyes are stared at this important region.”

The top cleric stated, “I am sure that if the Americans seek adventurism the world will soon realize that they have made a grave mistake.”

The former president said the U.S. oppressive actions against Iraq, Lebanon, Afghanistan, and Palestine are all aimed at taking control of the “sensitive and important” region of the Middle East.

He expressed hope that the U.S. officials would act wisely and choose “the proper and reasonable policy of negotiations” as a solution to the crises. (ANI)
