TEHRAN (ISNA) - Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said Canadian Foreign Minister's recent remarks bear no value to show any reaction.
Mehmanparast referred to Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird's interview with Jerusalem Post newspaper during which he decisively claimed Iran has made nuclear bomb.
According to Mehmanparast, Baird has discussed the illusion of repeating Libyan issue in case of Iran, noting all the allegations possess no diplomatic standard and no values to show any reaction.
He added, "Taking such position by Canadian officials is not a surprising issue for us since the country believes to be the preserver of neoconservatives' defeated heritage in the U.S. though they have paid a heavy cost in this regard."
Mehmanparast stressed, "Apparently, Canadian Foreign Minister is not aware of regional developments and his remarks which compared Iran and Bahrain's issues witness the case."
He called for Baird to respect realities, broaden his studying on regional issues and prevent the repetition of such positions which bring shame on Canadian state in public opinion and Canadian elites.
