Iran: Fanfare won’t help U.S. whitewash its image

Political Desk

The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman said resorting to “fanfare” will not help “the U.S. regime whitewash its image”, but only makes “Iranians and the world more resentful of it”.

Nasser Kanaani made the remarks in a tweet on Friday in reaction to a baseless claim made on Wednesday by the U.S. Justice Department, charging “without any proof and documentation” a member of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) with planning to assassinate John Bolton, who served as national security adviser to former president Donald Trump.

Kanaani added, “Fabricating stories about a politically bankrupt element, a known terrorist and a coup plotter against independent states, is a U.S. deceptive bid to escape its international responsibilities.”

Earlier on Thursday morning, in a statement in reaction to the same issue, Kanaani censured U.S. judicial officials for hurling new accusations against Tehran without any credible proof, noting that such moves are a continuation of Washington’s failed policy of spreading Iranophobia.

He rejected such baseless claims as politically motivated and part of U.S. bids to poison the atmosphere surrounding Iran through launching a propaganda campaign and evading being held accountable for the numerous terrorist crimes its administrations have either perpetrated directly, such as the January 2020 assassination of Iranian commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, or supported, like those committed by terrorist groups such as Daesh.

Kanaani added that fabricating “threadbare and baseless” stories is becoming a recurrent process in the U.S. judicial and propaganda systems, stressing that this time they have resorted to creating scenarios using “politically bankrupt and worthless elements”, such as Bolton, to move ahead with the process.

He emphasized that Iran firmly warns against any act against its nationals based on such “ridiculous” accusations and emphasizes that it reserves the right to take any action within the framework of international law to defend the rights of the nation and its citizens.
