Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei expressed strong opposition on Sunday to US intervention in Iraq, saying Iraqis themselves were able to bring an end to the violence there, the official IRNA news agency reported.

Khamenei, who has the last word on all matters of state, added in remarks to judiciary officials that Washington aimed to keep Iraq under its control and place its own "Yes Men" in power. The conflict there was not sectarian, but was really between those who wanted Iraq in the US camp and those who sought Iraq's independence, IRNA reported.
