Iranian Regime: US Accusations Against Iran to Divert Attention from Wall Street Protests
The Iranian Parliament Speaker claimed that the accusations against Iran are a diversion aimed at derailing the world public opinion from the Wall Street protests.
The Iranian regime rejected the allegations today.
Fars News reported:
Chairman of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaoddin Boroujerdi strongly rejected the US allegations that Iran plotted to assassinate a Saudi envoy to Washington, and said the US move is aimed at derailing the world public opinion from the Wall Street uprising.
“No doubt this is a new American-Zionist plot to divert the public opinion from the crisis Obama is grappling with,” the senior MP told FNA early Wednesday morning.
“Today, the united States is witnessing a popular uprising called Wall Street protests which have targeted the hostile policies of that country’s statesmen. Thus, Americans are seeking to derail the public opinion from the Wall Street uprising,” he continued.
The Iranian lawmaker underlined that “the Islamic Republic of Iran has never pursued or adopted the policy of assassination, and it rather is a victim of terrorism. Therefore, the US officials’ allegation is nothing but a big lie”.
To conclude his remarks, Boroujerdi described the new US plot as a failed move, and stated, “Americans cannot derail the Wall Street uprising in this way.”
FBI and DEA agents alleged on Tuesday that they have disrupted a plot to commit a “significant terrorist act in the United States” tied to Iran, federal officials told ABC News today.
The US officials claimed that the plot included the assassination of the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the United States, Adel Al-Jubeir, with a bomb and subsequent bomb attacks on the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Washington, D.C. Bombings of the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Buenos Aires, Argentina, were also discussed, according to the US officials.
