Saudi ambassador’s anti-Iran claim empty, worthless
Tehran, The claim of Saudi ambassador to the United States against Iranian foreign minister is 'empty and worthless of answering', public relations department of the Iranian Foreign Ministry said in a statement a copy of which IRNA received on Thursday.
The Saudi baseless claim released by Arab newspaper of Asharq Al-awsat about the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was 'too ridiculous' to be answered, the statement said.
'The Iranian regime's foreign minister Mohammed Javad Zarif desperately attempts to present a moderate face outside his country. He doesn't even try at home, where such networks are banned, demonstrating that what he says is mere lip service to the West,' these are parts of claims made by Saudi ambassador in an article which was full of anti-Iran remarks and published by Asharq Al-awsat on July 24.
It is good to say that they are making efforts in vain to raise doubt, create rift and help continuation of anti-Iran centers' smear campaign to heckle the internal coherence and national unity; however, they should know that they cannot count on those efforts, the statement added.
The Iranian nation well knows its committed and patriotic officials and does not care such allegations, amateurish lies and outdated methods applied and designed by their 'thoughtless rooms' and then published by certain anti-Iran media, the statement concluded.
