Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi said that the United States’ strategies in dealing with Iran had failed and Washington is now “in its weakest position.”

Addressing the lower house of the Russian parliament on Thursday, Raisi used his address to the State Duma in lashing out at the US.

Referring to Iran and Russia, Raisi said the “power of independent nations” was experiencing a “historic growth,” while accusing the US and its allies of seeking to “weaken independent governments from within”.

Meanwhile, China, Russia, and Iran are planning a joint naval exercise. The plan comes amid speculation that the three countries are teaming up against the US.

Raisi left Tehran for Moscow on Wednesday for a visit at the invitation of his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

According to the local reports, the trip is a part of the two countries’ plans to enhance the economic, political, and cultural relations.
