Third parties pushing Morocco to level accusations against Iran

.jwplayer{ display: inline-block; } TEHRAN, May 24 (MNA) – In reaction to Moroccan Bourita‘s interview with Fox News, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman said Thurs. that third parties are pushing the Moroccan authorities to level baseless accusations against the Islamic Republic.

In a Thursday statement Bahram Ghasemi rejected Moroccan foreign minister’ new accusations against Iran during an interview with US Fox News, saying that the Moroccan Foreign Minister knows well that his accusations are false, baseless and based on illusions of other parties who are instigating him to make false accusations in contrast to the interests of their people.

Ghasemi added that repeating those allegations and insisting on them is a futile attempt which will ultimately be detrimental to the Islamic countries.

Earlier this month, Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita claimed that Rabat had evidence showing Iranian government had provided financial as well as logistical support to Polisario Front through its embassy in Algiers.

Moroccan government has announced it will cut diplomatic ties with Iran over those accusations.

From the very first days, some media and analysts cited evidence that Morocco was under pressure from the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia to cut diplomatic relations with Iran.
