Iran denies US accusation of destabilizing region
Iran’s foreign ministry Bahram Qassemi denied the US accusations that the Islamic Republic is playing a destabilizing role in the region, state media reported.
"Repeating the groundless accusations and lies will not help solve the large and strategic mistakes America has made in recent decades against Iran and the region," the spokesman said.
"While there’s time remaining, Mr. Tillerson should become more familiar with the realities and history of the region and American policies, and its effects which has led to serious instability and the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent women, children and people," Reuters cited him as saying.
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had said that Iran is carrying out “destabilizing actions” by supporting Hezbollah in Lebanon, supplying missiles to Houthi forces in Yemen and sending weapons and militia fighters to Syria.
