Iraqi President Saddam Hussein is alive and full of vigor to stop the Western aggressors, said Iraqi Minister of Foreign Affairs Nadzhi Sabri at a press conference in Bagdad on Friday.
According to Rosbalt, Hussein said the Western media regularly lies to its readers, viewers, and listeners when they say that all the speeches of the Iraqi leader were taped earlier and at the current time Hussein, who was allegedly injured during one of the Bagdad bombings, is in critical condition.
On Thursday, Sabri gave an interview to the BBC and said he did not intend to comment on the state of health of the Iraqi president. 'That question is none of your business,' he said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, in his speech dedicated to the Day of the Russian Navy, recalled the threats that Russia is currently facing from a number of countries.
