MNA – The Spokesperson of the Iranian foreign ministry pointed to the recent US harassment of the Iranian airliner in Syria noting that Iran will take the required measures to make the US regret its deed.
In a press conference on Monday, Abbas Mousavi answered various questions about the Islamic Republic’s foreign policies.
He condemned the US harassment of a Mahan passenger plane saying that Americans have acted like pirates and done a risky measure.
“It was a terrorist and dangerous act and against all the international laws,” he underlined.
“The Iranian foreign ministry, Iran Civil Aviation Organization, Judiciary system, and the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran will take the necessary measures to make the US regret what it has done,” he added.
US will not achieve its aim of extending Iran arms embargo
In reaction to the recent remarks of Pompeo about the extension of Arms Embargo on Iran, Mousavi assured that the US will not reach its preferred target.
On FM Zarif’s talks in Moscow
He elsewhere addressed FM Zarif’s talks with Russian President Putin and explained that the two sides have conferred on the most important issues and concerns of the two countries in the bilateral, regional and international field and the obtained achievements will be revealed in near future.
The spokesman named Zarif’s latest trip to Baghdad as ‘fruitful’.
Iran supports Afghan-led peace talks
Mousavi also reiterated that Iran pays specific attention to Afghan-Afghan talks under the current Afghan government and rejects any foreign interference in Afghan peace talks. He added that Iran will use its specific capacities for resolving tensions in Afghanistan.
Iran’s presence in Syria
Addressing the Zionist PM’s claims about the presence of Iran in Syria, Mousavi noted that “Iran is present in Syria as an advisor and due to the request of the legitimate Syrian government and nation.”
Same as Brian Hook, Netanyahu is a windbag, Mousavi said, adding that the “Existence of the Zionist regime is regarded as illegitimate by a lot of countries including Iran.”
Zionists cannot make any comments about Iran’s presence in other countries, he noted.
The regime in Tel Aviv is not in the position to tell Iran where and how it should be, highlighted the spokesperson.
On the black box of the Ukrainian airliner
About the decryption of Ukrainian flight’s black box in France, the Iranian officials said, “France has the technology to decode the black box of the downed Ukranian flight and it is not expected to release the achieved data from it unofficially.”
