No Interest in Expansionism

A lawmaker has denied allegations by the beleaguered US administration and its junior partners in the Middle East that Iran's intervention in the conflicts around the region and beyond is part of its expansionist policy.
"Iran has never sought expansionism in its foreign policy and has been quick to help the oppressed in the world whenever it has been called upon," said Shahrouz Barzegar Golshani, who is a member of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission.
"Iran's aid and assistance to the Syrian people is in line with our cause of supporting the defenseless and based on our religious values and Islamic teachings," he told ICANA at the weekend.
The lawmaker from Salmas in West Azarbaijan Province, was echoing the position of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei on Saturday that Iran's presence in West Asia and Syria in support of the resistance groups is in the framework of its declared policy of backing the oppressed.
