US provoking crisis in region: Iran MP

IRNA – US is seeking to spread regional crisis by supporting the terrorist groups, a senior Iranian lawmaker said.

He made the remarks in a trilateral meeting held in the Russian capital, Moscow with the presence of members of Iran, Russia and Turkey parliament’s national security and foreign policy commission.
