FM spokesman slams claims of Iran’s support to Taliban as vivid lies


He made the remarks on Monday in reactions to the claims by the Taliban spokesperson Mulla Zabihullah who had suggested Iran’s support for the grouplet.

He said that Iran has always pioneered other regional countries in fighting terrorist groups and had paid dearly for its efforts.

He said the Taliban spokesman’s remarks were a pre-planned scheme designed by its sponsors to blunder the pubic opinions and promote Iranophobia.

He described such attempts by the terrorist grouplet as a futile attempt to divert the world public opinion from Al Saud crimes in killing defenseless Yemeni people.
