Iran supreme leader blames West for Islamic State rise, wants regional solution

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei blamed Western powers on Tuesday for the rise of Islamic State (IS) insurgents in Iraq and Syria and said they had no business tampering with the region's geopolitics. Iran and the United States have been arch-foes for decades but now share a strategic interest in reversing the territorial gains of IS that threaten to remake the Middle East map. But cooperation has been blocked in part by the fact Tehran and Washington back opposing sides in Syria's civil war, where Islamic State is among rebel forces fighting President Bashar al-Assad. #Business #United States #India #China #Syria #Brazil #France #Russia #markets #Latin America #Mexico #opinion
