A former deputy head of the Arab League said the US stirs and supports sectarian wars in the region in a bid to help materialize Israel's interests.

"The US policies about Israel should change and Washington should desist from supporting sectarian wars which are to the benefit of the Zionist regime since all the sectarian wars in Islamic countries serve the interests of that regime," Former Arab League Deputy Secretary-General for Palestinian Affairs Saeed Kamal told FNA on Tuesday.

Asked if the US will change its foreign policy with regard to Israel, he said Washington and Tel Aviv will be separated in all but the Palestinian issue, and the US will fully support and obey Israel against the Palestinian nation.

In relevant remarks in August, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei warned about the enemies' plots to stir sectarian strife among the regional nations.

During the meeting held on the sidelines of the 16th heads-of-state summit of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) here in Tehran at the time, the Supreme Leader cautioned against the dangerous attempts made to sow discord and stir clashes between different religious sects in the Muslim nations, specially between the Shiite and Sunni Muslims, and said, "These actions are carried out through the support of certain powers and by means of their hirelings, whose instances can be seen in Afghanistan and Pakistan now."

"The Al-Qaeda and the Taliban were created with the support of the US allies in the region, while the US is bombing countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan under the pretext of fighting them," said the Leader, and added, "But their main goal is hegemony over these countries."

He further warned the Indonesian official to take precautions about such dangerous plots against Muslims in Indonesia, Egypt and Libya, and underlined the necessity of increased cooperation among Islamic states.
