US relocating Daesh terrorists: Iran FM

ظریف

Tehran (ISNA) - Iran’s Foreign Minister says the fresh claims of a chemical attack by the Syrian government and threats of a military response to the alleged incident are yet another attempt by the US and its allies to boost the morale of the terror groups, which are taking heavy blows on the battlefield in the Arab state.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif made the remarks on Tuesday upon his arrival in Brazil from Senegal, on the second leg of his tour of four African and Latin American states.

Asked about Israel’s recent missile attack on a Syrian air base, the top Iranian diplomat said it was not unprecedented.

“The situation of US-backed terrorists is Syria is not good and every day they are suffering new blows. The Zionist regime and the US have in different stages rushed to the scene to boost the morale of terrorists," he said.

“Whenever the terrorists face defeats, the Zionist regime has launched operations and the Americans, too,” Mr. Zarif added.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Zarif warned of the repercussions of the “dangerous” policies adopted by Washington and Tel Aviv in the region, among them the relocation of Daesh terrorists, Press TV reported.

The Iranian minister described the terrorists as a highly dangerous American “investment,” saying, “There is authentic intelligence that the US is relocating the Daesh terrorists” to use them in different regions.

“These policies are very dangerous and their outcome will be dangerous for both regional and international peace and security as well as the US itself,” he added.

Asked about an alleged gas attack on the militant-held Syrian town of Douma last weekend, Zarif reiterated Iran’s condemnation of any use of chemical weapons by any party, adding, however, “We think the US government is looking for pretext for intervention.”
