Accusing Iran of supporting terrorism, distorting truth
Accusing Iran of supporting terrorism is distortion of truth and fully based on double standards, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham said on Thursday, IRNA reported.
Rejecting the US State Departmentˈs annual global report on terrorism published Wednesday, she reiterated that Iran, itself, has been a victim of terrorism in the past three decades and the baseless claims regarding Iranˈs support for terrorism is politically motivated.
Presence and free activities of terrorists in the United States who assassinated over 15,000 Iranian civilians including senior officials as well as use of drones in massacring innocent regional people and Washingtonˈs inaction towards Israelis crimes against defenseless Palestinians pose seious questions about the US claims of campaign against terrorism.
Such a move threatens international peace and security, she reiterated.
