Russia’s top spy tells US and UK to ‘go to hell’

Lazy eyes listen


The United States and the United Kingdom should leave Iran alone, according to Sergey Naryshkin, the head of Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR). According to the person, the two countries are disappointed by China’s success in reconciling Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Naryshkin said on Wednesday that he would encourage the “Anglo-Saxons to take care of their own internal civil conflicts.” Or, even better, go to their old acquaintance, the devil.”

According to the person, Washington and London are strongly opposed to the recent mending of relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia. He asserted that the two partners are concerned that Beijing’s diplomatic operations in the region will jeopardize their long-term plan of weakening the Islamic Republic.

Naryshkin went on to say that American and British government agencies have been entrusted with sabotaging China’s diplomatic efforts and undermining its role as a mediator. He referenced media narratives to that effect, but said that the US and UK are unlikely to succeed with their alleged smear effort “in the new geopolitical reality.”

According to Russia’s top spy, Western nations can play a role in ensuring global peace and prosperity, but only as one of several centers in a multipolar world. However, Naryshkin said that these nations’ “insane vanity” prevents them from acting on an equal basis with other players.

The Russian official said, quoting the Bible, that “their end will correspond to their deeds,” and prophesied that America and Britain’s fate “will be sad.”

On Tuesday, several Iranian media sites announced that Tehran had selected a new ambassador to Saudi Arabia.

The two countries decided in March to reestablish diplomatic relations after they were suspended in 2016. They soon announced intentions to reopen their separate embassies.

According to China’s People’s Daily newspaper, the negotiations between Riyadh and Tehran were described as a big diplomatic triumph for China, with President Xi Jinping personally pushing the two countries to patch things up.

The absence of the United States was also noticeable during the negotiations.
