Denying Role In Burning U.S. Flag
ILNA* - The spokesman of the Iranian Parliament’s conservative faction has renounced the recent burning of the U.S. flag and a copy of the Iran nuclear deal by a group of hardliners, saying his faction was not behind the move.
“The last week’s move of members of the faction to burn the U.S. flag and JCPOA was not coordinated and the faction was not aware of it,” said Hossein Naqavi Hosseini said.
Last Wednesday, over 20 lawmakers, most of whom members of the conservative faction, burned a copy of the 2015 nuclear deal and the U.S. flag on the Parliament’s floor in a symbolic response to the U.S. withdrawal from the multi-party accord.
