Iran’s Foreign Ministry rejected as “ill-advised” the comments made by king of Jordan who has accused Iran of being involved in strategic problems in the Middle East, saying his move to put Iran on the same list with ISIS demonstrates his shallow view of the regional developments.
“The king of Jordan seems to have made a strategic and fundamental mistake in defining terrorism, and the interpretations is his remarks simply show the shallowness of his view on the regional developments,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Saturday.
His comments came after Jordanian King Abdullah highlighted the need for countering Iran and ISIS terrorist group in a recent interview with The Washington Post.
The Arab leader has also accused Iran of posing “potential threat to the region”, and has called for efforts to guarantee Israel’s security.
In reaction, Qassemi said the king had better review the figures about the Jordanian nationals who has joined ISIS terrorists before making comments on Iran, which has been at the forefront of the fight against terrorism and extremism for ensuring the region’s security.
The spokesman also described King Abdullah’s support for the Tel Aviv regime’s security as an indicator of how complicated and tough the situation in the Middle East is.
The Jordanian king had better spend some time reading logic, as well as the Middle East’s history and geography in order to contribute to the regional security, stability and unity, the Iranian spokesman added.
