Iran scoffs at US warning over Iraq

(AFP) Iran on Thursday dismissed US President George W. Bush’s allegations of its interference in Iraq as “undocumented” and a sign of “political despair,” local news agencies reported.

“Bush’s statements lack any new and documented points and are a sign of indecision, lack of wisdom and political despair,” Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said, quoted by the semi-official Mehr news agency.

Bush demanded on Tuesday that Iran end support for extremists in Iraq and said he had ordered military chiefs in Iraq to confront Iran’s “murderous activities.”

“The US president faces serious problem in creating propaganda for the next election and thinks he can find a way out these problems by unfounded words,” Mottaki said.

The foreign minister called on the United States to “end its security approach and pure militarism, respect people’s votes and leave the region to its main owners in order to get out of a succession of mistakes.”

Bush branded the Islamic republic “the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism,” and accused it of backing Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and Shiite fighters killing US troops in Iraq.

Iran blames the US-led occupation for the deadly conflict in its western neighbour and calls for a pullout.

Iran supports the Shiite-led government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, who is criticized for his inability to reunite his war-torn country.
