U.S. not able to implement promised change: MP

TEHRNA, May 2 (MNA) – Apparently new U.S. officials are not powerful enough to implement ‘changes’ promised during the presidential campaigns, the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee spokesman said on Saturday.

Kazem Jalali added that the U.S., instead of making a real policy change, is repeating the mistakes of his predecessor George. W. Bush.

 

In response to a U.S. annual report accusing Iran of sponsoring terrorism, he said Iran itself is a victim of terrorism and that terrorists are mainly sponsored by the major powers in different parts of the world.

 

He said even just a few days ago terrorists killed 10 Iranian police officers in Kermanshah province.

 

The U.S. State Department, in its annual report on terrorism released on Thursday, repeated old accusations against the Islamic Republic, labeling it “the most significant state sponsor of terrorism.”

 

The veteran diplomat said terrorism in eastern Iran is rooted in the U.S. policy in the region.

 

Jalali also said most terrorists are involved in drug trafficking racket.

 

Opium cultivation has increased incredibly since the fall of Taliban by the U.S. in 2001.
