Iranian Judiciary Chief Ayatollah
Sadeq Amoli Larijani has dismissed the recent anti-Iran scenario fabricated by the US as an "irrational and ridiculous accusation," Press TV reported referring to IRNA.
Larijani said on Wednesday that many Americans do not believe Washington's anti-Iran allegations and Iranian officials "have also explicitly rejected the charges and any common sense can see the irrationality and absurdity of this accusation.
Larijani described Iran as a "victim of terrorism" and said Western countries use a double standard and hypocritical approach towards terrorism.
"While the US is clearly at fault for human rights violations and terrorism and its hands are covered in the blood of Muslims and non-Muslims it makes baseless claims against Iran," Larijani said.
Iran's Judiciary chief described US claims of advocating human rights and fighting terrorism as a pretext to cover up its internal problems and failures, adding that Washington sought to distract public opinion from the Occupy Wall Street movement by falsely accusing Iran.
Last week, the US accused Iran of involvement in a plot to assassinate Saudi Ambassador to Washington Adel Al-Jubeir with help from a suspected member of a Mexican drug cartel.
Iran has categorically denied the accusation, saying the recent anti-Iran scenario is a "ludicrous" allegation by the US.
On Saturday, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the US administration is responsible for escalating tension and undermining international security through its propaganda campaign against Iran.
