Tehran Deplores Jordan King’s Anti-Iran Remarks
TEHRAN - Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi has dismissed the recent remarks by Jordan’s king on Tehran’s regional policies, saying such accusations are in contradiction to the realities of the region.
In a Sunday statement, Qasemi pointed to the claims by King Abdullah II about an “Iranian crescent” and “Iran’s meddling in the region” and stressed that they are against the calls by the people and most countries of the Middle East for establishing lasting peace and security in the region.
“Such unfair statements cannot deny Iran’s stabilizing role, relentless efforts in fight against terrorism and its contribution to establishing security in the region.”
The spokesman went on to say uttering such remarks amid the critical and hard conditions of the region does not meet the interests of the regional governments and nations at all.
