Speaking in a news conference at the sidelines of the Tehran International Conference on Syria, Aliakbar Salehi said "It is against international conventions for someone to enter another country with no permission.”
"They enter Syria with no authorization and then they assert that there must be rules and conventions and territorial integrity must be considered,” he said.
The Foreign Minister of Iran asserted "McCain violated all these principals by going to Syria. They do all this only with the power of their media and their logic of power and physicality; and then they say we are the law. If it is so then it is the law of the jungle.”
Salehi said that Iran strongly condemns such behavior and added "Such behavior can be seen frequently with American officials. It will imply to the world that the US is a bullying country. That is something in contrast with the current situations of the world where things are moving towards law and international rules.”
