Iran urges US to end its interfering policy

Tehran, Aug 25, Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi rebuked US new strategy against Pakistan, saying that the US should stop the policy of interfering in regional countries' affairs and making decisions for them.

'What the US today condemns other countries for is the result of Washington's wrong and ill-timed policies in the region, particularly in Afghanistan and its opportunist strategies, unilateral policies and wrong interferences whose outcome was nothing but escalating chaos, growth of terrorism and extremism in the region,' said the spokesman.

Recommending the US government not to meddle in regional states' affairs, Qasemi said, 'These countries enjoy the necessary capacity for collective cooperation in the fight against terrorism and establishing stability and security in the region and have no need for the US destabilizing strategies and terrorism-fostering policies.'

Washington, in line with its interfering policies, has recently accused Pakistan to be a safe haven for terrorist groups and threatened Islamabad to cut its financial aids for the country.
