Foreign Ministry rejects US implicating of Iranian embassies in terror acts
Foreign Ministry Spokesman of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Bahram Qassemi has dismissed as ludicrous a recent US allegation that Iranian embassies are involved in terror attacks in Europe.
According to Press TV, Qassemi on Wednesday rejected the allegation by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as baseless, preposterous and part of a targeted propaganda campaign and psychological warfare against the activities of the Iranian embassies, which he said were in line with international conventions and aimed at promoting bilateral friendly relations with other countries.
Qassemi said that bringing up such allegations was “another attempt by the United States to destroy our country’s foreign relations.”
Pompeo on Tuesday accused Iran of using its embassies to plot terrorist attacks in Europe.
“Pompeo levels such groundless claims against our country while different types of evidence of spying and acts of sabotage by the American embassies with hundreds of military and security personnel [involved]… have been published in various sources, and contemporary history is full of such types of illegitimate activities which are in contravention of international regulations,” Qassemi said.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry said the allegations aimed to damage Iran-Europe relations during the visit.
