The Head of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Political Bureau, Brigadier General Yadollah Javani, says certain Western states are seeking to turn the ongoing political milieu in Iran to their advantage.
In an exclusive interview with Press TV, he stated that the United States together with some Western countries are leaving no stone unturned to benefit enormously from the current political situation in Iran and kick up a velvet revolution in the country.
“One knows that color revolutions like Georgia’s Rose Revolution and Ukraine’s Orange Revolution were US-instigated and meant to make states of the former USSR pursue Washington’s policies and serve its interests,” he said.
The Brigadier General added that great significance should be attached to color-coded revolutions as US officials have sought to prompt one in Iran. He said the national security adviser during Bush’s first term in office, Condoleezza Rice, once commented that all of Washington’s efforts to deal blows to the Islamic Republic, to isolate or even overthrow it have fallen flat.
