Tehran (ISNA) - Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Bahram Qassemi has dismissed the latest anti-Iran statements made by US President Donald Trump and his national security adviser John Bolton as well as the accusations levelled in the National Strategy for Counter terrorism.

In a statement, Qassemi slammed as "baseless and unfounded" the US officials' allegations and parts of the document of Trump's National Strategy for Counter terrorism which allegedly condemns the Islamic Republic for supporting terrorism and destabilizing the West Asian region.

"Such comments, baseless and worn-out accusations, and the daydreams which we've recently seen in the words of US officials, especially the US president and some of his closest associates, are the result of the successive defeats that Washington has suffered in different fields over the past few months in the face of the determination, resistance and wisdom of Iran and Iranians," he noted.

He also referred to the September meetings of the United Nations General Assembly and the Security Council, and said they proved the isolation of the US and its unilateralist policies.

What the people of the world saw in those meetings had nothing to do with the worn-out rants of the US president and his national security adviser, he noted.

Qassemi further underlined that in the remarks made by Trump and Bolton and their so-called National Strategy for Counter terrorism, one can find the trace of warmongers and the lobby of some regional regimes whose names have always been synonymous with terrorism and extremism.

These regimes are also the most notorious military and financial supporters of terrorist groups in the region, he underlined.

By making such misleading statements, they are trying to distract the world's attention from their own bloody, disgraceful, brutal, destabilizing and aggressive measures in the region, he went on to say.
