Iran referred to as "unfounded allegations and distortions," Israel´s
accusations that the Islamic Republic was behind a recent spate of
terror plots against Israeli interests abroad, while charging the
Jewish State with assassinating Iranian nuclear scientists as part of
a "war game," AFP reported on Thursday.
The complaints came in a letter sent by Iran´s Ambassador to the UN,
Mohammad Khazaee, to the UN Security Council.
Tehran "categorically rejects the allegations concerning any
involvement of its officials or organs whatsoever in alleged recent
terrorist operations against Israeli targets in a number of
countries, namely Thailand, India, Georgia or Azerbaijan," Khazaee´s
He added that Iran has "suffered from terrorist acts including
assassinations of her nuclear scientists due to the tacit and
explicit support extended by the Israeli regime to terrorist groups."
Khazaee accused Israel of "blatant defiance of the most basic and
fundamental principles of international law and the United Nations
Charter." (© 1995-2011, The Jerusalem Post 02/23/12)
