Iran Rejects US Claim It ‘Continues To Sponsor Global Terror’


khameneiIran rejected yesterday US claims that it was a sponsor of global terror attacks, saying instead it is a victim of terrorism, AFP reports.

On Friday, the US State Department said the Islamic Republic “continued to sponsor global terror” attacks last year and supplied arms to the Syrian regime even though it was engaged in talks to rein in its nuclear programme.

But Iranian foreign ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said those accusations were “worthless.”

“For three decades, Iran has been the great victim of terrorism and considers international cooperation to combat terrorism a priority,” she said, without elaborating.
