Iran Majlis to sue US over terror acts
Following Iran's declared insistence that it will reveal documents implicating the US in numerous terror acts and operations against Iran and the region, an Iranian lawmaker says the Majlis (parliament) will pursue legal action against Washington, Press TV reported.
Iran's Majlis is prepared to file a lawsuit against the United States with the UN Security Council, said a member of the Majlis Sub-committee on Security, Vali Esmaeili on Saturday.
He added that the sub-committee has placed the legal action against the US government on its agenda over Washington's role in hundreds of acts of terror against the Iranian people and other nations, Fars news agency reported.
The solid documents of the Iranian nation prove that the US, as the symbol of terrorism in the world, has killed millions of people and is a threat to humanity, he stated.
The legislator further explained that the Islamic Republic has documents proving that the US has direct or indirect links with all terrorists across the world.
The Americans should not be fall victim to criminal acts of their own government, Esmaeili pointed out.
He predicted that the Americans will come to streets and move to bring the world's main terrorists to trial once Iran exposes documents detailing Washington's involvement in terrorist operations.
Esmaeili expressed hope that independent countries will cooperate with Iranian lawmakers so that the UN will take a serious measure to take a legal action against principal terrorists in the world.
On Friday, Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Saeed Jalili displayed two sets of documents, which he said would prove that the US government had ties with infamous terror groups and elements.
Jalili added that Tehran has solid evidence that American officials sent saboteurs and their elements to carry out acts of terror in Iran and other regional countries.
He said Tehran reserves the right to take legal action against the US in both Iranian and international courts, adding that Iran would submit the documents to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon for circulation among UN member states.
The SNSC secretary's remarks came after Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said on Wednesday that Iran possesses 100 documents implicating the US for involvement in terrorist acts.
