A senior Iranian official praised a strategic deal with China saying it expedited the end of America.
The secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, Ali Shamkhani, wrote on Twitter that the 25-year agreement between Iran and China was part of Tehran’s “active resistance policy.”
“The world isn't just the West and the West doesn't just (consist of) the law-breaking United States and covenant-breaking Britain, France and Germany. Biden's concern is well-founded: the flourishing of strategic cooperation in the East will accelerate the decline of the United States,” he said.
The signing of &Strategic Partnership Roadmap is part of the #ActiveResistance policy. The world isn't just the West & West isn't just the lawbreaking.
Biden's concern is correct: the flourishing of strategic cooperation in the East is accelerating the US decline.
