Islamic Republic No Threat to Anybody in Iraq or Elsewhere: Iran UN Mission

Al-Manar | May 16, 2019

Iran has rejected the United States’ claims that ‘Iranian activities’ endanger American sites and troops in Iraq, saying the Islamic Republic is no threat to anybody in Iraq or elsewhere.

“’Iran is no threat to anybody in Iraq or elsewhere, and Iran is not preparing for any attacks anywhere,” Alireza Miryousefi, the spokesman for Iran mission to the United Nations made the statement on Wednesday.

“Iran, as is evidenced by our history, only acts in self-defense, and has no offensive strategy against any nation,” he added, according to Mehr news agency.

The official censured the US for sticking to fake reports for spreading propaganda against the Islamic Republic, saying, “Iranians will never capitulate to this new psychological war.”

The US has recently built up its military presence in the region over what it calls an Iranian threat to American troops and interests.

Last week, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claimed that the US administration had received intelligence related to “Iranian activity” that put American facilities and service personnel at “substantial risk.”

Other senior officials within the US administration itself as well as other countries have however dismissed that claim.

Following Pompeo’s claims, the US on Wednesday ordered the partial evacuation of its embassy in Baghdad and a consulate in Erbil.

  1. “Last week, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claimed that the US administration had received intelligence related to “Iranian activity” that put American facilities and service personnel at “substantial risk.”

    Well, if the USA stopped sticking its NOSE where it is not wanted, there wouldn’t be a problem would there? Iraq AND Syria have told the USA to get out of their respected countries. “Yankee(Government) Go HOME”.
    Go home and FIX YOUR country……

  2. Let’s not neglect the shameful truth: “United States’ claims” are “Zionist-entity claims” — faux-” intelligence” passed ever-so-slyly by Satanyahu, the Mossad and assorted Ziopsychotic criminals to the traitorous ilk of ZioBolton, Pompeo, Pence and the entirety of the Adelson/Trump regime purporting to MAGA (shhhhh*t) in Zio-Occupied WashDC. It’d be a joke if it weren’t so goddam dangerous…and shameful.
