Iran’s top security official vows tough reaction to states sponsoring terrorist acts at borders

TEHRAN (FNA)- Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani warned that Tehran will not allow certain countries to support and supply terrorists with arms to foment insecurity at borders and inside Iran.

Shamkhani made the remarks in a meeting with National Security Advisor of Pakistan Nasser Khan Janjua in Tehran on Monday, alluding to Saudi Arabia which has blatantly showed its support for terrorist activities against Iran and other regional countries.

“We will not allow certain countries to send weapons and hire terrorists to stir insecurity at borders and affect relations between the two countries (Iran and Pakistan),” he stressed.

“It is regretting that a Muslim state spends its money and revenues to spread war and terrorism in the region based on the demands of the enemies of Islam and establishes secret ties with the Zionist regime by showing indifference to the besieged people in Gaza and the Palestinian issue,” Shamkhani said.

He underscored that fighting the thoughts which spread and nurture the ISIL is the most important priority and the basis of fighting against terrorism without which no country either in the region or in Europe will remain stable and secure.

In relevant remarks last week, Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council (EC) Mohsen Rezayee blasted Saudi Arabia for its destructive measures in the region, and said Riyadh is supporting and sending terrorists to Iran.

“The Saudi consulate in Northern Iraq helps the Komala Party (a terrorist group active in Kurdistan region) to interfere in Iran and Iraq’s affairs and sends terrorists to Iran but its plots have failed due to the vigilance of the revolutionary forces,” Rezayee said, addressing a forum in Alborz province near Tehran on Saturday.

“The Saudis are the most evil government on Earth and are stirring turmoil in the region because of their insanity,” he added.

Also earlier this month, Rezayee blasted the Saudi officials for supporting the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, also known as the MEK, PMOI and NCR) terrorist group, and said Tehran is in possession of documents showing Riyadh’s involvement in MKO crimes.

“Today, our message to the al-Saud is that it takes us some time to get angry, but once we feel infuriated, we will leave no trace of al-Saud on the Earth. We take the Saudi government responsible for the assassinations carried out by Monafeqin (Hypocrites as the MKO members are called in Iran) and the anti-revolutionaries and have collected their documents,” said Rezayee, also a former commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).

He referred to the presence of former Saudi General Intelligence Directorate (GID) Chief Turki al-Faisal in the recent MKO terrorist group’s annual gathering in Paris, and said, “He called on them (the MKO) to restart assassinations in Iran. Saudi Arabia’s official support for Monafeqin showed that all assassinations by the grouplet in recent years have been carried out by Saudi Arabia’s support.”

Rezayee said that several months ago, the Saudi officials had held similar meetings with the separatist Kurdish terrorist groups, including the so-called Democratic Party, Komala Party and PJAK (the Party for Free Life of Kurdistan), and a number of assassinations have been carried out in Iran’s Kurdistan region recently.

Early in July, Head of the IRGC Public Relations Department General Ramezan Sharif rapped Riyadh for supporting the MKO terrorist group, and said the Saudi regime is the center of all supports for terrorist groups in the region.

“The presence of former Saudi General Intelligence Directorate (GID) Chief (Turki al-Faisal) at the MKO meeting in Paris and his sympathy and companionship with them shows the age-old bond between Monafeqin (the Hypocrites as MKO members are called in Iran) terrorist group and the Saudi regime against the Islamic Revolution and the Iranian nation,” Sharif said.

“Today, it has been revealed to the world public opinion that the Saudi regime is the axis of support for the terrorist streams in the region and beyond,” he added.

“Actually, Monafeqin, the ISIL, Taliban, al-Qaeda and tens of other terrorist grouplets spread in the geography of Islam and humanity, commit the biggest crimes against humanity under the leadership and strategies of the US, the Zionist regime and the regional reactionary regimes with the extensive financial supports of the al-Saud,” Sharif said.
