TEHRAN, Nov. 04 (Press Shia Agency) – Iranian Parliament’s General Director for International Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said US documents on Iran-al-Qaeda links were baseless and unsubstantial.

The official made the remarks in a message released in cyberspace explaining “al-Qaeda is rooted in Saudi Wahhabism and current terrorist incidents can be traced back to the triangle of Tel Aviv, Riyadh, and Washington.”

Earlier, Iran’s FM Zarif had also written on his official Twitter page that “a record low for the reach of petrodollars: CIA & FDD fake news w/ selective Al-Qaeda docs re: Iran can’t whitewash role of US allies in 9/11.”

The official made the remarks in response to the alleged documents released on al-Qaeda terrorist group.

While Iran has repeatedly adopted transparent stances against terrorist groups like ISIL, Taliban and Al-Qaeda, the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), in a bid to remove stain of disgrace from the US allies, has recently released documents claiming that Iran has proposed to support the terrorist group of al-Qaeda.
