TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson condemned the US and its top diplomat for backing anti-Iran terrorist groups, including the cover organization United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI).
“On the one hand, the United States deceitfully speaks of compromise and negotiation, and on the other hand, it organizes, finances, and arms criminal and terrorist groups… and provides them with intelligence,” Abbas Mousavi said in a statement on Tuesday.
He also said these groups include terrorists and criminals who have the blood of thousands of Iranian people on their hands and served as Saddam Hussein’s mercenaries in the 1980-1988 war imposed on Iran.
They also include certain separatists who are on the payroll of foreigners and seek to harm the country’s territorial integrity, the Foreign Ministry’s website quoted Mousavi as saying.
Mousavi made the remarks in response to the reports that anti-Iran terrorist and separatist groups are to be gathered together by a cover organization called “United Against Nuclear Iran”, in a ridiculous show, with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo playing the main role.
The Iranian spokesman strongly condemned such moves by Washington, especially by the US state secretary.
“Of course, they are just disgracing themselves because our beloved homeland has been proud and stable for thousands of years and will remain strong and solid for thousands more, and the enemies and mercenaries will not be able to inflict the slightest damage on it,” he underlined.
“These futile struggles will be broken by the unity of the Iranian nation and government as proven during the imposed war and in various incidents,” Mousavi added.
The spokesperson emphasized that Iran would begin the process of considering adding the US cover organization “United Against Nuclear Iran” to its list of terrorist groups soon, due to its close cooperation with terrorist groups.
