Head of Iran's Assembly of Experts says the long-term security accord between Washington and Baghdad aims to enslave the Iraqi nation.

Ayatollah Ali-Akbar Hashemi-Rafsanjani, who is in the holy city of Mecca to attend a Muslim interfaith conference, expressed strong opposition to the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) being negotiated between the US and Iraq.

Chairman of the Expediency Council said the US 'occupation of Iraq represents a danger to all regional nations' and warned that the security deal was an introduction to permanent occupation.

Ayatollah Hashemi-Rafsanjani pledged that the Muslim world would stop the deal and said 'the essence of this agreement is to turn the Iraqis into American slaves'.

He, however, added that the Iraqi people and government as well as Muslim nations would not allow this deal to follow through.

As July 31st, the date set for the signing of the SOFA agreement, draws closer widespread protests are building up in Iraq.

The Iraqi nation now insists that the government put the contract to a general referendum or at the very least to a parliamentary vote before agreeing to sign it.
