'West uses terrorism as pressure tool'
Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Americas Behrouz Kamalvandi says hegemonic powers use various issues, including terrorism, as a tool to pile up pressure on their non-allies
Kamalvandi, who is on a tour of Latin American countries, made the remark in a meeting with Bolivia's Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca, Mehr news agency reported Saturday.
He further pointed out that the United States, in particular, set up terrorist groups in an attempt to achieve certain objectives.
The Iranian diplomat said that Middle Eastern countries were the prime target of such policy as they were accused of supporting terrorism and were consequently invaded by Western countries under the pretext of fighting terrorism.
Regarding the recent ongoing developments in the Middle East and North Africa, Kamalvandi said that injustice, corrupted rulers, gaps between social classes and lack of political freedom were among the main reasons behind public revolutions in the region.
