Iran: Biden's Anti-Tehran Rhetoric Aimed at Fomenting Insecurity in West Asia
TEHRAN (FNA)- Tehran on Sunday dismissed the recent allegations made by US President Joe Biden against Iran, and warned that Washington is trying to stir up tension in the region by resorting to its policy of Iranophobia.
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kana'ani made the remarks in reaction to the latest remarks by Biden, who accused Tehran of destabilizing activities in the West Asia region during an address to a summit of regional Arab states in the Saudi city of Jeddah on Saturday.
In response, Kana'ani described the US president’s remarks as baseless and unacceptable, and said, "Such groundless allegations are in line with Washington’s policy to incite sedition and stir tension in the region.”
The Iranian official noted, "the United States is the sole country that has used nuclear weapons and in addition, its track records are marked with continued interference in the internal affairs of regional countries, occupation and military aggression as well as massive weapons sales and promoting militarism in West Asia."
“Once more, the United States is trying to create tension and crisis in the region by resorting to its failed policy of Iranophobia,” he added.
He stated Iran’s strategic policy is to avail itself of peaceful nuclear technology within framework of international rules and regulations while, at the same time, continue negotiations for the removal of sanctions imposed on the country.
“False accusations that the United States levels against Iran’s peaceful nuclear program while turning a blind eye to several decades of the Zionist regime’s deception as a regime that is not a member of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) while possessing the biggest nuclear arsenal in the region, are a major sign of hypocrisy of the US government,” the spokesman continued.
Citing the United States’ decades-long blind and unrestrained support for the usurping Zionist regime, the Iranian spokesman stressed, “Without a doubt, the US government is the main supporter of the continued occupation of Palestine and Al-Quds and a culprit to daily crimes of this regime against Palestinians as well as systematic violation of human rights of the oppressed and resistant nation of Palestine.”
Kana'ani concluded his statement by reiterating that Iran pursues the principled and constructive policy of dialogue with neighbors and intra-regional initiatives.
“Regional governments are expected to answer the Islamic Republic of Iran’s call and initiatives for [the promotion of] dialogue and regional cooperation by taking constructive steps in favor of collective security, peace, stability and joint development,” he stated.

Iran has repeatedly called on regional countries to be watchful of the US-Israeli plots in the West Asia that clearly aims to disturb the stability and order in the region.
Iranian officials have repeatedly underlined the necessity for the settlement of the crises and problems in the region through collective cooperation among the regional states, and underscored that the US presence is not helpful.
Top military Aide to the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi said last month that the American forces will again experience their humiliating flee from Afghanistan in Iraq and Syria.
The US disgraceful flee from Afghanistan will be repeated in Iraq and Eastern Syria too, General Rahim Safavi stated.
"They have to escape from the Persian Gulf and West Asia as they cannot stay in this region," he added.
