Iran’s FM: 9/11 Caused by Pro-Pompeo Terrorists

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif lashed out at the outgoing US Secretary State Mike Pompeo’s recent claims against Iran, stressing that the perpetrators of the Sep. 11 incidents were terrorists who had come from the countries that are Pompeo’s favorites.

"All the terrorists involved in 9/11 event were from Mike Pompeo’s favorite countries in West Asia, and none from Iran,” Zarif wrote on his Twitter page on Tuesday.

Zarif added that the US warmongering government is engaged in branding others as terrorists and taking famous terrorist groups out of their classifications.   

On Tuesday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Al Qaeda’s new base of operations is inside Iran, however, he offered no underlying intelligence as evidence and his conclusions were contradicted by other American officials.
