TEHRAN, Dec 5 (NNN-IRNA) – The Iranian foreign minister, yesterday, accused the United States, along with some other Western countries, of “seeking to cause chaos” in Iran, to force its concessions in the talks on reviving the 2015 nuclear deal.
Hossein Amir-Abdollahian made the accusation, at a joint press conference with his Serbian counterpart, Ivica Dacic, following their meeting in Serbia’s capital, Belgrade.
“We do not let anybody incite riots and terrorism in our country,” he was quoted by the Iranian Students’ News Agency, as saying.
Protests erupted in Iran after 22-year-old Mahsa Amini died in a Tehran hospital on Sept 16, a few days after her collapse at a police station. Iran has accused the United States and some other Western countries of “inciting riots and supporting terrorists” in the country.
Speaking of his recent phone call with EU foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, Amir-Abdollahian said, “Only a lasting agreement capable of safeguarding Iranian people’s interests would be valuable to Iran.”– NNN-IRNA
