TEHRAN (ISNA)-Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast strongly rejected the US false allegation that has linked Iran to the assassination of Saudi Arabian ambassador to the United States, Adel al-Jubeir.
Mehmanparast's remarks came after the US officials made fabricated and unfounded claim that Iran has plotted murder of the Saudi diplomat. Mehmanparast said, "Such shabby treatments which are in line with the US and Zionist regime’s hostile policies are charades which go in line with specific scenarios followed by the enemies of Islam and the region."
He added, “Writers of such scenarios aim at sowing discord and saving the Zionist regime from the current isolation."
He stressed, “The Islamic Republic of Iran has been established based on Islamic virtues and moralities and has always warned on the danger of regional enemy plots.”
“Such US and Zionist regime’s repeated scenarios have been brought up since American logic and policies inside the region had faced serious failure and widespread national and international protests.” Mehmanparast said.
He continued, “Iran-Saudi Arabia relation has been based on mutual respect and that raising false claims does not help them obtain their objectives and affect the public opinion.”
