Iran terms as 'illogical' Saudi FM's accusation against Iran
IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency
Tehran, Sept 24, IRNA
Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi said on Saturday that statement of Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal implicating Iran in Iraq unrest was surprising and illogical.
He said that Iran expects its friendly nations no to make such illogical statements.
"We believe when suspicious hands are at work to sow factional and ethnic discord among Muslims in Iraq and the entire region, we should not do in a such way as to enable enemies of Islam to take advantage of differences," Asefi said.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran always advocates national solidarity in Iraq and unity of different factions to contribute to the political process for adoption of the Constitution in a democratic manner and immediate establishment of peace and stability in Iraq to thwart plots of the enemies of Islam.
"Iran expects all countries especially the friendly nations in the region to contribute to establishment of peace and security in Iraq rather than making the Iraqi nation suspicious of its government," Asefi said.
"Brushing aside any allegation about Iranian interference in Iraq, Iran believes that the great Iraqi nation enjoys enough political capacity to administer their country without foreign interference.
Such a capacity has been proved by Iraqi political and religious leaders and every individual in the country," he said.
