Tehran rejects G7 anti-Iran accusations, calling them ‘unfounded’
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nasser Kanaani rejects the G7's statement in which they accused Iran of transferring drones to Russia for use in Ukraine and condemned it for "destabilizing activities" following Mahsa Amini's death.
On Wednesday, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nasser Kanaani strongly condemned and rejected the Group of Seven (G7) recent statement about the latest developments in Iran.
Foreign ministers of the G7, which consists of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Britain, and the US, issued a statement following their meeting in Germany on November 4, condemning Iran for what they called a crackdown on protests that followed Mahsa Amini's death.
The G7's statement condemned Iran for what they described as “destabilizing activities” and criticized the country for the alleged transfer of drones to Russia for use in the Ukraine war after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky claimed that Russia was deploying almost 2,500 attack drones purchased from Iran.
Kanaani told IRNA that all those allegations are unfounded and fabricated, adding that the G7 statement violates the UN Charter.
The G7 statement practically encourages riots and terrorist attacks in Iran, Kanaani said, adding that those issuing the statement should be held accountable for their stance.
The diplomat said that the majority of the G7 member states refused to even condemn the October 26 terrorist attack in the southern city of Shiraz, which shows the G7 members divide terrorism into good and bad, and which indicates contradiction in their words and actions, he added.
Iran has always remained committed to its obligations under the 2015 nuclear deal and is ready to reach a revival agreement that guarantees the rights of its people, Kanaani added.
The spokesman emphasized Iran's efforts to promote peace and stability in the region and stressed that the accusations against the country over regional issues are totally rejected.
