U.S. created Islamic State, claims Iran's supreme leader

U.S. created Islamic State, claims Iran's supreme leader

Iran has a transparent foreign policy and has always supported regional security, Minister Zarif said, noting that Iran wants security to reign in neighboring countries, including Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

"On the western side, the same type of activity is being undertaken, again abusing the diplomatic hospitality of our other neighbour", he said, without elaborating.

The Iranian capital, Tehran, is reeling from two terrorist attacks that targeted the Iranian Parliament and the Mausoleum of late Imam Khomeini and left at least 17 people dead and scores more injured.

According to the Al Arabiya report, number 12 on the Saudi list of terrorists is a man responsible for the funding of terrorist organizations in Yemen.

On Tehran's enmity with Washington, the Iranian leader said "Some of the problems with the USA are essentially unresolvable as the US's problem with us has nothing to do with nuclear energy or human rights, their problem is with the principle of the Islamic Republic".

"This terrorist act took place a week after a joint meeting between the U.S. president and head of a reactionary regional country [Saudi Arabia] which has been a constant supporter of terrorism", the statement said. "We condemn terrorist attacks anywhere they occur and we condemn the killing of the innocent anywhere it occurs", he said.

He also told high-ranking Iranian officials that "America's claim of fighting against Islamic State is a lie", Reuters reports, while in an interview with Iranian media, he said the usa regarded his country as an enemy. High on the list of reasons for breaking ties, Saudi Arabia named Qatar's friendly ties with Iran and Hamas.

Baluchistan is home to a Sunni population who form a minority in majority Shia Iran.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain broke off relations with Qatar on 5 June, accusing the small but oil-rich emirate of supporting "terrorism" and being too close to Iran, which is Riyadh's regional rival.

Earlier, Iranian Parliamentary Speaker Ali Larijani accused Washington of being an ally of Islamic State in the region.

"Some of the problems with the United States are essentially unresolvable as the US's problem with us has nothing to do with nuclear energy or human rights, their problem is with the principle of the Islamic Republic", added the Leader.
