Ayatollah Sistani met with UN envoys
Ayatollah Sistani: I am afraid responsible parties do not have enough determination to do any real reform.
Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani Iraq’s top cleric leader said in meeting with UN envoys:
“I am afraid responsible parties do not have enough determination to do any real reform.”
Marja of Shia emphasizing on real reforms in a reasonable time and showing interest in recent proposal by UN envoys, showed concern if there is real determination among responsible parties to do real reform.
In this meeting it was mentioned that the three powers of Iraq; executive, legislative and justice cannot do necessary reforms or they do not want to. It should be thought to use other means for reforms since it is impossible to continue with the same situation as before the protests.
Ayatollah Sistani insisting on ending the violence against peaceful protesters, demanded arrest and interrogation of them and to punish those who did against the law and religion, and expressed he is against foreign interference in Iraq and to make Iraq battle for regional and international score settling.
