Iran rejects Moroccan FM’s baseless claims

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh stressed that Moroccan government due to its inability to resolve its regional issues has once again repeated its false and baseless accusations against the Islamic Republic of Iran and supported the criminal Zionist regime.

In a reaction to remarks made by Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita at an event organized by the controversial lobby group the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), khatibzadeh said, “It is unfortunate that the Moroccan government, which currently chairs the Quds Committee, is cooperating with enemies of the Islamic Ummah”.

“It is unfortunate that the Morrocan government is distracting the international attention from the main issue of the Islamic world, i.e. confronting the encroachment on the Holy Quds and defending the rights of the Palestinian people,” he added.

Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita confirmed on Friday that Rabat had taken the decision to normalize relations with the occupation "out of conviction" and will go as far as possible in developing bilateral cooperation with the Israeli regime. 

Regarding relations with Iran, the Moroccan official claimed, "We, as allies, need to coordinate work to confront Iranian threats related to nuclear activities. Iran is also acting to destabilize North Africa and West Africa".

Continuing his baseless claims, he added, "Iran has threatened the territorial integrity and security of Morocco by supporting, training and arming the Polisario militias".
