Iran denies US accusation of destabilizing region

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Wednesday that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies share a common view of the regional threat that Tehran poses over its destabilizing activities in Yemen and Syria.

In a statement on Wednesday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi denounced US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's recent comments against Iran as futile insistence on repeating false allegations against Tehran.

He also recommended that Tillerson take into account the realities and history of the region and the USA policies that have resulted in "severe crises and the killing of hundreds of thousands of women, children and other innocent people" before making any comment.

Before a meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation foreign ministers in Brussels, Rex Tillerson in a bilateral meeting with the EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini on Tuesday once more accused Iran of what he described being responsible for "destabilizing actions" in the region.

Tillerson criticized Iran's support for Syria in its fight against terrorists and Tehran's support for the Hezbollah resistance movement which is the only force which humiliated Israel in its 2006 war on Lebanon.

"Indubitably, turning a blind eye to Iran's great efforts in helping ensure stability and security and fighting terrorism, and levelling false accusations, can only be the result of this country's anger at the Islamic Republic of Iran's relentless fight and playing a humanitarian and stabilizing role and combating terrorism and can be a sign and evidence showing the United States' support for terrorism in the region".

Tillerson also said during his visit to Brussels that Iran must comply with the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal under which it agreed to curbs on its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of a number of sanctions.

The US secretary of state has expressed his support for the Iran nuclear deal, placing him at odds with US President Donald Trump who has labelled the agreement "the worst deal ever".
