Ayatollah: Terrorist US Destabilized Middle East

Ayatollah: Terrorist US Destabilized Middle East

He stressed that relations between the American and Iranian governments would continue to be at a standstill because "most of our problems with them can not be resolved".

Zarif described Iran-Kenya relations as good and assured Kenya of Tehran's readiness for providing humanitarian aid to the country.

Iranian forces have ventured outside the country's borders to kill the mastermind of last week's terror attacks on its parliament and the shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, according to a security official. "We condemn terrorist attacks anywhere they occur and we condemn the killing of the innocent anywhere it occurs", he said.

Islamic State (IS) extremists claimed responsibility for the attacks, and Iranian officials have repeated accusations that Saudi Arabia funds Islamic militants, including IS.

There are no apparent plans by Arab states to propose that names from their Qatar blacklist be subjected to United Nations sanctions, diplomats said on Wednesday, a likely hard move that would need approval by the 15-member U.N. Security Council.

Saudi Arabia, an ally of the United States, has long accused Iran of supporting terrorism. In this video an Islamic State militant vowed, "We will invade Iran and return it to Sunni control", and Shiite militiamen - thought to be Iraqis - were executed.

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Monday called the USA the "source" of instability in the Middle East and said it was responsible for the creation of the Islamic State terror group.

He gave no further details, but other officials said that four other alleged members of the gang had been killed in the southern Iranian province of Hormozgan, home to a substantial Arab minority. And it seems to elude many others in the West. "ISIS has expressed its desire to take over the country", the US Department of State's Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) stated in the report assessing diplomatic security in Saudi Arabia. Being a Sunni in Iran may not be comfortable, but it is not life-threatening.

Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards, a powerful branch of the country's military, vowed revenge for the attacks and blamed them on longstanding regional rival Saudi Arabia.

The remarks by Zarif partially referred to the comments made by Saudi Arabia's deputy crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman Al-Saud, in May, who said Riyadh would bring "the battle" into Iran. Iran's leaders and media gleefully anticipate the destruction of the Islamic State in its strongholds of Iraq and Syria, as if this will end the problem of jihadi violence.
