UN envoy: No one fooled by US disinformation campaign against Iran
Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations says nobody will be duped by Washington's campaign of disinformation against Tehran, after the US secretary of state accused “Iranian diplomats” of “involvement” in an alleged assassination in Turkey.
According to Press TV, Majid Takht Ravanchi tweeted on Thursday “The US administration’s Iran-bashing is limitless,” adding that despite Washington's efforts to spread disinformation about Tehran, "No one is fooled."
Takht Ravachi's tweet came after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, President Donald Trump administration’s most notorious Iran hawk, leveled the accusation in an earlier tweet, calling Iranian diplomats “agents of terror.”
“This was the best historic opportunity for the Americans to retrace their wrong path [by lifting the sanctions], and tell their [own] nation, for once at least, that ‘we are not against the Iranian nation,’” the Iranian president said.
Takht Ravanchi had already blasted the United States’ back-to-back attempts at spreading “disinformation” about the Islamic Republic.
