Senior Commander: Int’l Consensus against Iran 'A Myth Created by Enemies'

Politics - A senior Iranian commander said the western countries' boastful remarks about the existence of an international consensus against Iran are baseless and void of reality.

“Inspiring this idea that there is an international consensus against Iran is one of the strategies of the enemies,” Jazayeri said in a press conference in Tehran on Monday.

“The enemy wants everyone to believe that the world is against Iran, while these are just these four devilish American, European, Zionist and Arab regional states that are opposed to the Islamic Revolution,” he added.

In relevant remarks in August, a senior Iranian legislator censured the Zionist regime's baseless claims against Tehran, saying that Tel Aviv is promoting Iranophobia to come out of isolation.

"The western people's dissatisfaction and anger at their countries' high spending for the Zionist regime has endangered the regime seriously," member of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Mohammad Reza Mohseni Sani said.

"So, they naturally utter such protests and threats and raise baseless claims like their allegations about Iran's efforts to acquire atomic weapons in a bid to promote Iranophobia to divert the public opinion to some unreal issues and continue their illegitimate life and use of the Western assistance," he added.

Israel, Washington and their western allies accuse Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons under the cover of a civilian nuclear program, while they have never presented any corroborative evidence to substantiate their allegations. Iran denies the charges and insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.

Tehran stresses that the country has always pursued a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.

Despite the rules enshrined in the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) entitling every member state, including Iran, to the right of uranium enrichment, Tehran is now under four rounds of UN Security Council sanctions for turning down West's calls to give up its right of uranium enrichment.

Tehran has dismissed West's demands as politically tainted and illogical, stressing that sanctions and pressures merely consolidate Iranians' national resolve to continue the path.

The Islamic Republic says that it considers its nuclear case closed as it has come clean of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)'s questions and suspicions about its past nuclear activities.
