NEW DELHI: Amid speculation about the alleged role of Iranian agencies in the Israel embassy bomb attack, Iran on Monday warned against efforts to destabilise its growing ties with India. The Iranian embassy here said both countries won’t allow “third parties” to achieve their “sinister wishes”.
“While respecting the honourable government and authorities of India in their endeavour to thoroughly investigate and probe into the abovementioned incident in order to identify the orchestrators of such actions and to bring them to justice, this embassy strongly repudiates any unsubstantiated allegations or irresponsible comments in this regard and considers them as steps towards realising the sinister intentions of the enemies of Iran- India relations,” it said in a statement.
Meanwhile, the statement added, the Iranian authorities have always expressed their readiness to cooperate “with the Indian friends in order to unravel the wicked intentions of the spoilers of bilateral relations”.
“Emphasising on need to maintain these relations, Iran has always expressed its readiness to clarify the spoilers intentions,” tweeted the Iranian embassy. Without naming Israel, the Iranian embassy said Iran had itself been a victim of “terrorism waged by some terrorist governments and their agents”.
