TEHRAN: Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Tuesday the war in Ukraine should be stopped and accused the United States, which he called a “mafia-like regime,” of creating the conflict.

Iran’s top political authority also said the roots of the conflict must be acknowledged.

“In my view, Ukraine is a victim of the crises concocted by the United States,” Khamenei said.

“There are two lessons to be learnt here. States which depend on the support of the U.S. and Western powers need to know they cannot trust such countries,” he added.

While Iran and the United States have been foes for decades, Tehran and Moscow are strategic partners. Tehran and Moscow are military allies in the conflict in Syria. Russia is also an important trade partner because of Western sanctions against Iran.

Khamenei criticized Washington and other Western nations as talks reached a critical stage in Vienna between Iran and world powers about reviving a 2015 nuclear deal.
