Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps has lashed out at the UK, France and Germany for taking the US line by accusing Iran of involvement in a recent attack on Saudi oil facilities, saying the three European states are no less evil than the US government.
Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Major General Hossein Salami said the three EU states that have always been on the front line of hostility towards the Iranian nation are now telling lies, just like the US.
His comments came after the German, British and French leaders accused Iran of being behind the attacks on Aramco oil installations.
Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron, and Boris Johnson said in a joint statement after meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, “It is clear for us that Iran bears responsibility for this attack. There is no other explanation.”
According to ISNA, General Salami has also echoed the comments by Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei that “the Europeans are not any different than Americans,” saying the Europeans have shown their true face after leveling false accusations against Iran without any evidence.
“This is the nature of the Europe and the US,” he added.
In a separate statement, Iran’s Foreign Ministry has strongly condemned the irresponsible claim of the leaders of Britain, France, and Germany regarding the attack of the armed forces of the Yemeni government against Saudi facilities.
