IRGC Chief: Europeans, Americans Alike in Making Lies against Iran
By Staff, Agencies
“There is no difference between the Europeans and the Americans and today, the Europeans showed their real face when they accused Iran without providing a solid proof,” Chief Commander of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Major General Hossein Salami told reporters on Tuesday.
Reacting to the baseless accusations of E3 – France, Britain and Germany – in their recent statement which blames Iran for the Aramco raids, Salami said Europe and the US can be defined precisely, in particular those three European ones, we can refer to their behaviors when they stand in the front line of making lies against Iran.
In a joint statement earlier on Tuesday, the leaders of France, Germany, and the United Kingdom strongly condemned the September 14 attacks on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia’s Abqaiq and Khurais, and pinned the blame on Tehran.
"It is clear to us that Iran bears responsibility for this attack. There is no other plausible explanation," the statement read.
"We support ongoing investigations to establish further details," it added.
A few hours before releasing the statement, French President Emmanuel Macron warned that "one must be very careful in attributing responsibility" for the Aramco attacks.
"There are clusters of clues, but this bombardment is a new military event that changes the region's ecosystem," he said, stressing that caution was needed in apportioning blame for the attack.
