Zarif: Western countries should stop financing terrorists

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called on Western countries, especially the United States, to stop financing and supporting terrorists.

“ The terrorists are spreading hate from their safe shelter in the United States and Europe, inciting murder and chaos, planning these attacks from there and declaring in all sincerity their responsibility for killing innocent Iranian civilians,” Zarif said in a Twitter post on August 2. 

Zarif pointed to the attempts of Western countries to whitewash the image of terrorist groups seeking to commit sabotage acts in Iran.

 Zarif said: “Misinformation and deception cannot cover this hypocrisy.” 

On August 1, the Iranian Ministry of Security announced the arrest of Jamsheed Sharma, the leader of the terrorist group "Tinder", which is based in the United States of America. Tinder planned to carry out chemical and bacterial terrorist operations at the Tehran International Book Fair and the Russian Consulate in northern Iran.
