Asefi: Bush's anti-Iran claims a blame game

Iran-US-Asefi
Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi on Wednesday dismissed as 'blame game' the claims made by US President George W Bush at a US airbase.

Asefi said the US is the biggest supporter of terrorism and support for the Zionist regime's state terrorism is a clear instance of this.

He said that faced with domestic problems and extensive criticisms of his wrong policies, the US president has resorted to the blame game.

He added that it has become evident that the US raises allegations against other states to divert domestic public opinion.

He went on to say that the US is not only not serious in the campaign against terrorism but has also incited terrorism worldwide and should be held accountable to the people of the world, particularly the bereaved families of the victims of terrorism.

Asefi termed as 'oft and repeated' the 'poisonous' publicity of the US against independent states and said that after disclosure of the big lies of the Bush administration, public opinion no longer believes these claims.

He said that instead of spreading lies, the US president should work more on preventing US image from further deteriorating worldwide.

The official said the claims, raised to pile up 'intentional pressures' on Iran to force it give up its legitimate rights to peaceful use of nuclear energy, are totally rejected.

Bush had claimed that Iran aims to harm modern Islamic governments.
