Iranian Parliament's General Director for International Affairs
Hossein Amir-Abdollahian stressed that while it is early to draw conclusions
about the elements behind the ISIL terrorist attacks, there were rumors about
possible role of Saudi Arabia and extremist agents inside US government.
"There are reports that certain talks had been held with
Saudi officials during Mr. Trump’s visit to Riyadh, which also puts suspicion
on the complicity of some extremist agents inside US government in the
terrorist attacks on Tehran,” he said.
He went on to add, "Saudi foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir
and minister of defense Mohammad bin Salman had also recently threatened that
they would bring insecurities and war inside Iran. They must be held
accountable for their threats in the wake of the terrorist attacks on Tehran.”
The June 7 terrorist attacks on Iran’s Parliament and the
Mausoleum of Imam Khomeini left 17 people dead and 50 others injured. ISIL
claimed responsibility for both attacks.
