Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian said the Israeli spy agency, Mossad, has contributed a major role in the creation of ISIL terrorist group.
The most important intelligence organization, which has had a role in formation of the ISIL and supported its function, is Mossad and there are abundant evidences substantiating the idea, Amir Abdollahian told al-Ahd website on Wednesday.
He added that the leaders and members of the terrorist group follow up the extremist ideology and act in the name of Islam but it is in contradiction with injunctions of Islam and their aim is to distort image of Islam.
Amir-Abdollahian went on to comment that certain regional and international organizations try to ruin the region through their destructive plans.
“They launched a forged revolution in Syria, which once started the foreign intelligence organizations immediately began shipping arms to the opposition. We will continue support Iraq and its nation to counter terrorism, believing that the success of Staffan de Mistura, the UN special envoy for Syria, depends on submission of realistic political solution based on the will of the Syrian nation,” he said.
On Sunday, Amir Abdollahian said that the western countries and their regional allies use the Takfiri terrorists as a tool to promote Islamophobia in the world.
“Unfortunately, these states are playing with the security of the region and the world by using terrorism,” Amir Abdollahian said in a meeting with Norwegian Foreign Minister Borge Brende in Tehran.
He pointed to the US-led anti-ISIL Coalition, and said, “The US made a mistake in forming the illegal coalition against the ISIL because the move expanded the activities of the Takfiri terrorists in the region.”
The senior Iranian diplomat reiterated that the Syrian crisis, which began in March 2011 in the Arab country, needs “a diplomatic solution”.
Amir Abdollahian also blasted the western countries for arming the so-called “moderate militants” fighting against the Syrian government, and said, “The move will deepen the crisis in the war-torn Arab state.”
He noted that Iran is open to hold talks with regional states, including Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Egypt to help restore peace and security in the region.
