Iran blasts US terror report as 'baseless'

Iran's Foreign Ministry rejected as "baseless" a recent U.S. report saying that the Islamic republic continues to sponsor global terrorism, local media reported on Sunday.

The report's anti-Iran allegations are "repetitive and politically-motivated," and Washington's double-standard approach towards terrorism is the root cause of the spread of terrorism, Iran's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency.

On Friday, a U.S. State Department annual report on terrorism enlisted Iran among the countries that "continued to sponsor global terror" activities in 2014.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has been the "biggest victim of terrorism" over the past three decades, and such accusations against Iran is an attempt to divert attention from the real supporters of terrorism in the world, Afkham said.

Washington's failure to take a serious action against extremist groups inside the U.S. and its indifference to Israel's crimes against the Palestinians undermine the credibility of such reports on terrorism, she added.
