Iran’s Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani lashes out at British PM David Cameron for his anti-Iran remarks at the UN General Assembly.
Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani lashed out at British Prime Minister David Cameron for his anti-Iran comments at the 69th annual meeting of the UN General Assembly in New York, and said such remarks are rooted in London’s intense fear of the terrorism which has been created by Britain.
In comments aimed at PM Cameron, Larijani said, “You shouldn’t speak like this; you are nervous and ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) is its cause since you have helped it and now it has turned into a problem.”
Stressing that fearing a heinous group like ISIL is a true fear, he said the British officials who need Iran in their fight against the terrorist group shouldn’t speak like “Pharaohs” and use orders to meet their needs.
“Instead of admitting to your past mistakes in aiding the terrorists, you are now using a language which will not lead to meeting your needs,” Larijani said.
In relevant remarks on Thursday, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham said that the recent statements by Cameron at his UN General Assembly speech indicated the continuation of London’s self-centered outlooks.
Afkham’s comments came after Cameron’s speech at the 69th session of the UN General Assembly on Wednesday about the fight against ISIL terrorist group in Iraq in which he raised anti-Iran allegations.
