Member of the Majlis (parliament) National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Fatemeh Alia told ISNA on Saturday that there are around 100 documents showing US involvement in acts of terror and assassination attempts in the Islamic Republic and the region.
“Our diplomatic apparatus should pursue the case in qualified international courts and lodge a complaint against the US with the UN,” she added.
Alia further said that the available evidence includes files concerning Washington’s efforts to train terrorists and spies and dispatch them to different countries, and stressed, “These documents will disgrace the US.”
Insisting that people around the world have largely realized US duplicity, the Iranian lawmaker pointed out that “These documents will strengthen the will of the nations and raise their awareness of existing realities and the policies of the US and Zionist lobbies.”
The disclosure of the identities of Iranian scientists also comes after US presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich openly called for sabotaging Iran’s nuclear facilities through covert terrorist operations and assassinating Iranian scientists as part of Washington’s policy on November 12.
In recent years Iran has lost a number of its scientists to terrorism.
On November 29, 2010, unidentified terrorists slapped adhesive bombs onto the vehicles of Iranian university professors Majid Shahriari and Fereydoun Abbasi. Professor Shahriari was killed immediately, but Dr. Abbasi and his wife sustained minor injuries and were rushed to hospital.
Professor Masoud Ali-Mohammadi, a lecturer at Tehran University, was killed by a booby-trapped motorbike in the Iranian capital, Tehran, in January 2010. The bombing took place near the professor’s home in northern Tehran.
Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi later ensured the public that necessary measures have been adopted to ensure the safety of Iranian scientists and university professors.
It should also be noted that Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili went public with irrefutable evidence that proves the US government was involved in anti-Iran conspiracies as well as in dispatching elements to carry out acts of sabotage and terror in Iran and other regional countries on Nov. 4.
Jalili said that the documents show Washington has been directing and funding terrorist rings to achieve its regional objectives, adding that Tehran would be passing on the evidence to the UN.
The United States, israel, and some of their allies accuse Tehran of pursuing military objectives in its nuclear program and have used this pretext to push for the imposition of sanctions on Iran as well as to call for an attack on the country.
Iran argues that as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the IAEA, it has the right to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
Iranian officials have promised a crushing response to any military strike against the country, warning that any such measure could result in a war that would spread beyond the Middle East.
