Iran accuses US for ‘promoting’ terrorism globally

Agency News

Tehran, Apr 9 : Iranian President Hassan Rouhani accused United States on Tuesday of playing a major role in promoting terrorism across the entire globe, adding that the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), which Washington designated as a terrorist group, saved the Middle East region from the extremist threat.

"The US is not still ready to fight ISIS terrorist group, and is sheltering their heads, supporting terrorist groups. You (US) use terrorist groups against the peoples of the region, and yet claim to have been fighting terrorism? You are at the top of terrorism in the entire world," Rouhani said.

The Iranian president lashed out at the United States and, in particular, at US President Donald Trump, who on Monday officially designated the IRGC as a foreign terrorist organisation. (UNI)
