The statement was part of a speech on the occasion of the 28th anniversary of the death of the leader of the revolution in Iran, Ayatollah Khomeini, and was made against the backdrop of the last bloody terrorist attack in London.

According to the spiritual leader of Iran, currently the IG “is displaced from its place of origin in Syria and Iraq to other countries – Afghanistan, Pakistan, and even the Philippines and European countries.” Therefore, “this is a fire, which they (the countries of the West – Ed.)
