Iran Claims US Responsible for Creating Daesh

Iran Claims US Responsible for Creating Daesh

Earlier in the day, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that Iran had obtained intelligence data proving that Riyadh is supporting terrorists along Iranian eastern and western borders.

Iran's Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has accused the USA of destabilizing the Middle East by providing support to extremist groups active in the region.

He stressed that relations between the American and Iranian governments would continue to be at a standstill because "most of our problems with them can not be resolved".

Two days later, the suicide bombings and shootings in Tehran killed 17 people.

"On the western side, the same type of activity is being undertaken, again abusing the diplomatic hospitality of our other neighbour", he said, without elaborating.

The Iranian leader also said the USA and Saudi Arabia are in partnership when it comes to funding Sunni militants.

The Daesh Takfiri terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the attacks. Trump's choice of Saudi Arabia, Iran's bitter regional rival, for his first official foreign visit reflects the deep antagonism of his administration towards Iran. "We condemn terrorist attacks anywhere they occur and we condemn the killing of the innocent anywhere it occurs", he said.

Now, I know you heard [it], it's in the lexicon and everybody's talkin', but that's our word now. Cube acknowledged Maher's apology, but added that "we need to get to the root of the psyche".

He mentioned that Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline was a significant project to develop good relations with Iran, but the US and Saudi administrations have been pressuring Islamabad to abandon the project.

Baluchistan province is home to a Sunni population who form a minority in majority Shia Iran.

Gen. Massoud Jazayeri said Tuesday that Saudi Arabia and the United States "direct and support such acts of terrorism against regional countries", Tasnim news agency reported.

Iran repeated accusations that Saudi Arabia funds Islamic militants including Islamic State.

He added: "The US must know that the Islamic Republic will not back down from positions such as battling oppression and defending Palestine and will spare no efforts towards defending the people's rights".

Speaking at a roundtable discussion on Iran-Pakistan relations organized by the Center for Iranian Studies in Ankara (IRAM), Karim said that Pakistan historically has strong ties with Saudi Arabia and has also been very close to Iran.
