The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei called on Muslim states on Monday to stop the interference of the "great Satan," implying the United States, in their domestic affairs, the state IRIB TV website reported.

The U.S. government is the main obstacle in the path of Islamic world to sovereignty, Ayatollah Khamenei said, adding that the obstacle should be removed, according to IRIB.

Khamenei made the remarks when addressing a group of Muslim intellectuals who are in Tehran for an "International Islamic Unity Conference."

Referring to the uprisings in the Middle East region, Khamenei cautioned the Muslim scholars and elites not to let the U.S. hijack the fruits of popular movements in the Muslim countries, said the English language satellite Press TV.

"The elites' guidance is needed to assist the people of the nations to prevent the arrogant apparatus from hijacking the glorious popular movements and stealing their uprising," he was quoted as saying.

The recent popular movements in Muslim countries resulted from a prolonged humiliation caused by the western powers and "are primarily against the dominance of arrogant powers," he said.
