Iran's Zarif Continues Discussions on Mutual, Regional Issues in Norway

Implications of the ISIS Attacks in Tehran

Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Tuesday called for a permanent mechanism in the Gulf to resolve crises like the blockade against Qatar by Saudi Arabia and its allies.

"You (the United States) and your agents are the source of instability in the Middle East ... who created Islamic State?" "We condemn terrorist attacks anywhere they occur and we condemn the killing of the innocent anywhere it occurs", he said.

At an Arab Islamic American Summit in Riyadh last month, U.S. President Donald Trump accused Iran of fueling "the fires of sectarian conflict and terror" and called for its worldwide isolation.

Zarif described Iran-Kenya relations as good and assured Kenya of Tehran's readiness for providing humanitarian aid to the country.

In the meantime, deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brig. On Friday, however, he turned his wrath for the attacks on the United States and Saudi Arabia.

"Mohammad Javad Zarif made the statement at the opening ceremony of the Oslo Forum in Norway's capital on Tuesday, also attended by European Union foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, and former U.S. secretary of state John Kerry, IRNA reported".

Zarif arrived in Norway on Monday to participate in the 15th Annual International Retreat of Mediators and Peace Process Actors in Oslo Forum.

"We believe that the rest of the worldwide community will make it clear - as it has done already to them - that it considers the nuclear deal as a multilateral agreement and not a bilateral agreement between Iran and the United States", Zarif said.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) group claimed responsibility for the twin attacks that killed 17 people and wounded dozens.

Days after Iran was attacked by "Islamic State" terrorists and the country's military officials claimed Riyadh was behind them, Iran's diplomatic front has also pointed an accusing finger at the Saudi government.

Later on in the 1970s and 1980s, Hosseinzadeh added, terrorist groups mostly aimed to target and pressure religious democracy authorities in the country.

The comments sparked an immediate backlash from Iran.
