G7 Condemned For Anti-Iran Accusations
TEHRAN, May 23 (NNN-IRNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman, yesterday strongly condemned the “baseless and fabricated” accusations against Iran, in the communique, issued by leaders of the Group of Seven (G7), at the summit in Japan’s western city of Hiroshima.
In their statement, the G7 leaders criticised Iran for its “unabated escalation” of nuclear programme and “continued destabilising activities, including the transfer of missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVS) and related technologies to state and non-state actors.”
In a statement posted on the Foreign Ministry’s website, Spokesman, Nasser Kanaani, rejected all the accusations and claims against Tehran’s nuclear programme, saying, the programme is “peaceful” and nuclear weapons have no place in the country’s defence doctrine.
He stressed, Iran has never provided Russia with any drone for use in the Ukraine crisis and insisted that the only solution to the crisis is a political one.
He said, G7 leaders’s call for the implementation of the UN Security Council Resolution 2231, which endorses a 2015 nuclear deal, is “strange,” and an indication of their “contradictory” policies, as some of the G7 member states are the main “violators” of the resolution.
Kanaani called on the G7 members to end their “meddlesome” activities, which compromise regional security.
The G7 is an intergovernmental political forum consisting of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Britain and the United States. The European Union is a “non-enumerated member.”
