Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi said that allegations made by the Jordanian king against Iran revealed that he made a strategic blunder in defining terrorism and his statements were indicative of his shallow attitude

Ghasemi made the remarks while reacting to accusations levelled against Iran by Jordanian King Abdullah in a recent interview with a US newspaper where he accused Iran of supporting terrorism.

The Jordanian king made visited the US on April 5 to hold talks with President Donald Trump.

“The Jordanian king was better to have a look at the official statistics released about terrorists from his country who joined Daesh and other ignorant and murderer groups and then talks about Iran which is at the frontline of fighting terrorism and extremism and trying to consolidate regional security,” Ghasemi said.

Recalling the continued problems faced by the Islamic world and regional states as a result of creating the illegitimate Zionist regime, the official regretted that expressing support to the occupying regime, which amounts to insecurity for the entire region, and drawing baseless and ironic analogies between Iran and leaders of terrorist groups, particularly by the king of an Arab and Muslim country, demonstrated the deplorable and complicated situation the region was currently experiencing.

“There is no doubt that a major part of the existing situation in the region is rooted in the mistaken attitude of the certain countries politicians towards political issues and adoption of wrong and destructive policies which can eventually push the entire region towards insecurity and instability,” Ghasemi added.

He further suggested the Jordanian king to spend a little time on studying logic, history and geography of the region in order to help restore regional security, stability and unity.
