Zarif: Canadians Anti-Iran Act Will Be Detrimental To Them
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, in reaction to an anti-Iran plan approved by the Canadian House of Common, said 'These policies will be detrimental to Canada.'
Speaking to reporters upon his return from South Africa, Zarif said: 'unfortunately, in Canada there have been, and still are, wrong impressions and illusions towards the Islamic Republic of Iran.'
Although the Canadian government has changed and a new government has come to power, political pressures from extremist groups are going on.
Zarif said such policies will be detrimental to Canada and will never serve the international peace and security, urging Western countries to adopt independent policy in making decisions on the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Such policies are adopted at a time that the allies of the Western countries have perpetrated some mistakes and crimes in the region while the Westerners have kept mum on those crimes and are unjustly accusing the Islamic Republic of the crimes which their allies have committed, Zarif added.
He reiterated that Iran has been on the forefront of the fight against terrorism and had it not been for Iranian efforts and support, different conditions would have prevailed in the region.
On Tuesday, the Canadian House of Common by passing a bill put on hold all negotiations on resumption of diplomatic with Iran, blacklisted some Iranian military organs and raised some accusations against them.
