'Iraqi Opposition Should not Collaborate with Coalition'

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has called on the Iraqi opposition not to make "an historic disgrace" by collaborating with foreign coalition forces in the country.

"To collaborate with the foreign forces is an historic disgrace, and I advise you not to cooperate with these foreign forces," the all-powerful leader said in comments to "Iraqi political leaders" during a Friday prayer sermon in Tehran.

He also called on the Iraqi opposition to prevent "any situation of chaos or acts of vengance that would give foreign forces a pretext to stay in Iraq."
