He added the terrorist group was formed upon the US policy support for terrorism in Syria and was put in the service of colonial and ominous goals of this power.

Deputy FM explained that Daesh is an instrument in the hands of Washington and the US is using the dangerous terrorist group in direction of its plans and the fact that US does not confront with terrorism in Syria and Iraq shows the reality.

The Iranian senior diplomat said that certain countries want to disintegrate Iraq and use the same pattern in the future for other countries of the region, too.
