Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 16 /Trend S.Isayev, T. Jafarov/
Enemies wage war with Iran from all sides, Iranian Intelligence Minister Hojjatoleslam Heydar Moslehi said, ISNA reported.
According to the Ministry of Intelligence, the enemies try to commit attacks on Iran, from all sides, Moslehi said.
He added that while enemies threaten Iran and try to find vulnerabilities, their plans also create opportunities for Iran to respond appropriately.
Last month Moslehi announced the arrest of several spies who, in line with the plots of the U.S. government, wanted to disrupt the upcoming elections. Moslehi then noted that the "intelligence apparatus had complete information about the activities of the arrested spies".
The minister pointed out that the detained spies were trying to execute the plots of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) through social networks and cyberspace to disrupt the process of the upcoming elections.
He added that the detainees were in contact with abroad through cyberspace networks, and got arrested after complete information about their espionage activities was obtained.
