Majlis Speaker blasts Pompeo’s allegations against Iran

IRNA – The baseless allegations US Secretary of State made against Iran is not even worth an answer, Iran Majlis (Parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani said on Tuesday.

Larijani, reacting to calls by some lawmakers urging him to respond to Mike Pompeo’s allegations against Iran, said that Monday’s worthless claims by the US secretary of state do not deserve an answer especially during a Majlis open session.

He said that Iran’s Foreign Ministry, after all, did answer Pompeo’s worthless comments.

Iranian Foreign Ministry in a Monday statement termed US Pompeo’s cheap comments as a sign frustration of the American authorities in the face of Iran.

‘By rejecting each and every accusations raised in the so called new strategy (of the US), Iran regards Mike Pompeo’s rude remarks as blatant interference in its own internal affairs,’ the statement said.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in a speech delivered on Monday, made baseless accusatins against the Islamic Republic of Iran.
