Iran: US government responsible for regional destabilization, Ayatollah Khamenei

Ramadan toll shows Islamic State in pitched recruiting race

Pointing to the ongoing political crisis in and among the Persian Gulf Arab states, Zarif said the deepening conflict has once again highlighted the need for a permanent mechanism for sustainable regional security. He stressed that relations between the American and Iranian governments would continue to be at a standstill because "most of our problems with them can not be resolved".

Iran repeated accusations that Saudi Arabia funds Islamic militants including Islamic State.

In the other attack at the shrine of Imam Khomeini, one suicide bomber blew himself up while the second one was killed in an exchange of gunfire.

Earlier in the day, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that Iran had obtained intelligence data proving that Riyadh is supporting terrorists along Iranian eastern and western borders. The fear now is that if Iran is increasingly exposed to jihadi attacks, attitudes toward Sunnis - in particular the country's Sunni minority - will harden.

"On the Western side, the same type of activity is being undertaken", Zarif said.

In reaction to the June 7 terrorist attacks in Tehran, President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday that Iran will counter any terrorist move with full force.

Zarif also called for establishment of a regional forum to resolve differences, which has become more necessary after tensions between Qatar and the Saudi-led group of countries that took actian against Doha. "I think there's been a lot of irrational optimism that's gone into our relations with the Saudis over the years", said committee member Dana Rohrbacher (R., Calif.).

"We believe that the rest of the worldwide community will make it clear - as it has done already to them - that it considers the nuclear deal as a multilateral agreement and not a bilateral agreement between Iran and the United States", Zarif said.

"This terrorist act took place a week after a joint meeting between the USA president and head of a reactionary regional country [Saudi Arabia] which has been a constant supporter of terrorism", the statement said. They could not even tolerate huge turnouts in Iranian elections and, as a result, began to carry out acts of terror, added the MP.
