Iran chides US over ‘meddling’ remarks

News ID: 4005727 -
TEHRAN, Jun. 15 (MNA) – Iranian FM spokesman said Thu. the recent remarks by US Secretary of State about Iran are meddlesome and a blatant violation of peremptory norms of international law.

Bahram Ghasemi maintained that ‘confusion’, ‘impressionability by incorrect suggestions’, and ‘escapism’ are the hallmarks of the foreign policy of the new US administration, as evidenced in the recent remarks by the Secretary of State Rex Tillerson about Iran.

Ghasemi went on to add, “no doubt, such crude and inappropriate remarks are voiced with a futile intention to induce division in the unified Iranian nation or the government. But these attempts are doomed to failure as it was the case in the past four decades.”

“The only way ahead of US officials is to obtain a correct understanding of the realities in Iran and the region and to stop the ineffective us of threats and intervention in domestic affairs of Iran and other regional countries,” Ghasemi stressed, adding “the US needs to adopt a realistic, rational and unexcitable outlook toward developments in Iran and the Middle East.”

The Iranian diplomat further stated, “the US needs to realize that historical, geographical, and cultural realities, just like sustainable security and stability, are above doing business and bribing regional countries; grasping such realities demand thinking, understanding, and wisdom.”
