Iran terms accusations concerning attack on Israeli tanker as baseless

Tehran, IRNA- Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh on Sunday described accusations of the US and Zionist regime concerning Iran’s involvement in the attack on Israeli-managed tanker as baseless.

Khatibzadeh made the remarks in a weekly news conference that was streamed online.

Asked about the Zionist regime's accusations that Iran was involved in an attack on an Israeli tanker, he said that the illegitimate occupying regime must put an end to false accusations against Iran.

This is not the first time that the regime makes these accusations, he added.

He termed the accusations as naïve, noting that the accusations are based on the regime’s link in the US.

The officials of the regime must come to sense that they will not achieve anything by using the distractions.

The regime is in a bitter day of its own life, he said, adding that diverting attention by the regime is nothing new.

Occasionally, when good things happen in the region, the country uses distractions, he further noted.

The regime has created insecurity, violence, terrorism, and war wherever it has stepped into, he underlined.

The responsibility falls on those who have helped the regime to this end, Khatibzadeh added.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the Foreign Ministry spokesman reacted to the news on imposing the sanctions on Iran.

Washington is obsessed with these measures, he said, noting that even though they have repeatedly stated that maximum pressure policy has not only failed but has become a maximum failure for the US.

Imposing sanctions is also a failed logic under false pretenses, he underscored. 

Iran, which has been subjected to cruel sanctions for over four decades, has proved that whatever they have done cannot break Iran's will or cause a problem with Iran's legitimate self-defense programs, he stated.
