TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi rejected as 'ridiculous' Canada's claim that two people arrested in connection with a plot to derail a passenger train in the Toronto area were backed by al-Qaeda in Iran.

"If the news that you are announcing is true, this is the most hilarious thing I’ve heard in my 64 year," Salehi told reporters on Tuesday.

He further added that 'Iran's al-Qaeda' is a new fake issue and a really 'ridiculous word'.

“We hope Canadian officials show a little wisdom and pay attention to the world’s public opinion and intelligence,” he added.

Also, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast rejected the report, saying “We are against any kind of terrorist act… The extremist Canadian government has Iranophobia on its agenda and possibly, in continuation of its hostile approach, aims to link this to our country."

Iran has always stressed that as a victim of terrorist attack, condemns terrorist actions in any form and anywhere.
