Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Mostafa Mohammad Najjar said here on Sunday that the US is secretly supporting certain terrorist groups in staging bomb blasts in Iraq.
Addressing a monthly meeting of the defense diplomacy committee of the Defense Ministry, the General dismissed the US president’s recent accusations that Iran smuggles arms to Iraq, and stressed that Bush is projecting the blame on others.
“Our information shows that the Untied States secretly supports terrorist groups in Iraq and manages explosions in that country, specially in Baghdad, at a specific level,” he continued.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran views security of Iraq as a Muslim and neighboring country, as its own security and believes that a safe, integrated and united Iraq can serve as a significant factor in regional stability and security,” the minister added.
