Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi has dismissed as unfounded and ridiculous the latest anti-Iran accusations levelled by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
In a Wednesday statement, Qassemi said accusations raised by Pompeo are part of the US’ targeted psychological wars against Iranian embassies in the world.
“The embassies of the Islamic Republic operate within the international conventions and based on reciprocal relations with the host countries and endeavour to expand Tehran’s friendly and bilateral relations with them,” he noted.
The spokesman also said levelling accusations against the Islamic Republic of Iran over its diplomatic activities is part of a new attempt by the US to sever Iran’s relations with other countries.
Qassemi said the contemporary history is replete with illegal measures and violations of the international law by the US embassies in the world.
The US embassies have been interfering in the internal affairs of the host countries and severing their foreign relations with the outside world, he added.
Pompeo makes the baseless accusations against Iran as there is strong evidence, provided by various sources, that the US embassies are engaged in espionage and destructive measures in different countries, he said, adding that hundreds of military and security personnel are operating under a diplomatic guise in these embassies.
