Hossein Amirabdollahian wrote on Twitter on Thursday, “I advise the White House officials to stop the failed game of Iranophobia.”
The top Iranian diplomat added, “News fabrication about the al-Qaeda leader and linking him to Iran is laughable.”
The US on Wednesday claimed Seif al-Adel, a former Egyptian special forces officer and a high-ranking member of al Qaeda is located in Iran.
The Iranian foreign minister said, “The creators of al-Qaeda and Daesh are responsible for surge of terrorism in the world.
Do not give misleading information!”
The UN has described Seif al-Adel as the “uncontested” leader of al-Qaeda terror group.
