Iran will never show leniency towards terrorists: Spox

Tehran, Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said on Monday that Iran will never show leniency towards terrorists, dissidents and anti-Iran elements.

In response to Al-Jazeera question about missile attack on terrorists' positions in northern Iraq, he said that the option was not desirable for Iran, but terrorists' moves, especially killing Iranian border guards, forced the Iranian armed forces to conduct a retaliatory and deterrent action and even preemptive moves on some occasions.

He also said that common borders in the region would be secure and stable thanks to the arrangements made by all the parties.
