Iranian and Turkish regimes criticize US plans to call Muslim Brotherhood “Ikhwani” as a terrorist organization


Qatar – The Iranian and Turkish regimes have criticized US plan to designate Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwanul-Muslimeen) as a terrorist organization.

Foreign Minister of Iran Javad Zarif told media in Doha on Wednesday, “the US is not in a position to (..) start naming others as terror organizations and we reject by any attempt by the US in this regard.”

On the other hand Spokesperson of Tayyib Erdogan Omer Celik said, “such a decision by the US would undoubtedly yield extremely wrong results regarding stability, human rights, basic rights and freedoms in countries of the Islamic world.”

Muslim Brotherhood is held responsible for the chaotic situation in the middle-East that is directly responsible for begetting the child organizations like al-Qaeda and ISIS in the region.

US President Donald Trump is working closely with Egypt’s president Abdelfattah al-Sisi to designate Muslim Brotherhood as a “foreign terrorist organization” that leads to serious sanctions against the party.

If the sanctions are leveled against MB, the party will be crippled to spread its terror tentacles in the region, which has directly hampered the peace-process of Israel-Palestine issue by funding the Hamas party to help Israel justify the violent methods used against Palestinians.
