Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Mohammad Javad Zarif appeared in a press conference with his Iraqi counterpart Hoshyar Zebari on Wednesday afternoon.
Asked if recent terrorist attacks on Iranian offices in neighbor countries are anyhow linked to Iran’s developing relations with the West he said "There are some whose behavior in international relations relies on creating crisis and tension. They have grown worried over Iran’s new movements to reach agreements which respect the rights of the Iranian people, intend to meet problems, and try to lift the sanctions.”
He added "The sham crisis they had created over the region based on lies is passing. We believe it is necessary for regional interests and security that we bring to light the false notion of Irano-phobia which was spread over the area by the Zionist regime and the rest of the extremists.”
