Tillerson Stresses Common NATO View of Iran's Regional Threat

Ghasemi said that "repeating false allegations by the USA officials will not compensate for the strategic mistakes made by the United States towards Iran and the region over the past decades".

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.

Iran's foreign ministry denied yesterday USA accusations that the Islamic Republic is playing a destabilizing role in the region, state media reported.

'Before it is late, Mr. Tillerson had better try to learn truths and the history of the region, and review the United States policies and their consequences that have resulted in acute crises and death of hundreds of women, children and innocent people, ' Qasemi said.

U.S. President Donald Trump stated last month that Iran was not upholding "the spirit" of the agreement, which forces Iran to curb its nuclear program in exchange for an easing of worldwide economic sanctions.

US President Donald Trump dealt a blow to the pact in October by refusing to certify that Tehran was complying with the accord even though global inspectors said it was.

- Trump has repeatedly called the Iran nuclear deal a sham.

'Accusing other countries is no remedy for old pains and wounds left from aggressive and greedy policies of the U.S. in the region'.

The U.S. and Israel are concerned over Iran's growing influence in the Middle East, particularly in Syria and Lebanon. He didn't take any questions from reporters but only made a statement saying that the United States remains committed to Europe, offering a public statement of support for European allies anxious about foreign policy under President Donald Trump. He wanted the nuclear agreement to be revised to remove an expiration date, and to impose tighter conditions to stop Tehran from developing new centrifuges used to make weapons-grade nuclear material.
