Iranian General Says Daesh Militants Staging Attacks Under US, Saudi Guidance

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif smiles during the opening of the Oslo Forum at Losby Gods outside Oslo Norway

"We have intelligence that Saudi Arabia is actively engaged in promoting terrorist groups operating on the eastern side of Iran in Balochistan", Zarif said.

Major General Mostafa Izadi, deputy chief of staff of Iran's armed forces, said Sunday that the government in Tehran had "documents and information" showing Washington's support of the extremist Sunni Islamist group.

Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain accuse Qatar of supporting terrorism networks in the region.

The assailants attacked the parliament buildins in the morning.

Tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia have escalated further as Iran's Revolutionary Guards blamed the deadly June 7 attack in Tehran, which killed 17 people and wounded 52 others, on Saudi Arabia.

Following the incident, the so-called Abdullah Azzam Brigades claimed responsibility for the bombings.

In the meantime, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brig Gen Massoud Jazayeri said on Tuesday that Saudi Arabia and the USA "direct and support such acts of terrorism against regional countries", Tasnim news agency reported.

"Qatar is a partner of the United Kingdom in the fight against terrorism but they urgently need to do more to address support for extremist groups, building on the steps they have already taken", Johnson said. None. Why is he trying to change history?

Minister Zarif and High Representative Mogherini exchanged views on global and regional issues as well as the nuclear accord, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), in the Norwegian capital, Oslo, on Monday.

He made the remarks in the 15th Annual International Retreat of Mediators and Peace Process Actors in Oslo Forum, Norway, Iranian News Agency reported.

The issue had been discussed in the latest session of a joint commission that monitors the implementation of the JCPOA and would be on the agenda of the commission's future meeting, he said.

At least six of the people on the Arab states blacklist are already named on the U.N. Security Council al Qaeda and Islamic State sanctions list, which subjects them to a global asset freeze, travel ban and arms embargo.

Khamenei said Iran had no intention of normalizing ties with the United States. In the view of many Iranians, wherever they stand on the country's reformist-conservative axis, any lack of political or social freedom in the Islamic Republic is a price worth paying for a secure state, and they have dreaded the day when - if - that security would come to an end. Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif denounced them as "repugnant", saying Iranians were countering "terror backed by US clients".
