Zarif: Proofs Piled Up Disclose Conspiracy Against Iran  

Zarif: Proofs Piled Up Disclose Conspiracy Against Iran

Sun Jun 23, 2019 5:24

TEHRAN (FNA)- The US president hawkish advisor along with the top leaders in Tel Aviv, Riyadh and Abu Dhabi have sought to set up false-flag operations to push Washington into a war with Tehran, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif stated on Sunday.

The Iranian top diplomat noted a US spy drone's intrusion into Iranian airspace in late May as well as "speedboat purchases and phone calls planning" as some pieces of evidence already available to disclose a B-Team's set-up to defame Iran through the tankers attacks false-flag operation in the Persian Gulf and Sea of Oman.

Zarif said President Donald Trump was too close to see himself in a war with the Islamic Republic as his anti-Tehran aide and his team set several different scenarios, including US spy drone and oil tankers incidents, to lay the blame at Tehran.

More evidence—including encroachment of a MQ9 spy drone on 5/26, speedboat purchases & phone calls planning to attribute ship attacks to Iran—indicate #B_Team was moments away from trapping @realDonaldTrump into a war. Prudence prevented it, but #EconomicTerrorism brings tension. pic.twitter.com/LmWJTDvt2O

The B-Team is a reference to US National Security Adviser John Bolton, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman (MbS) and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan (MbZ).

Washington has recently claimed that Tehran is responsible for the attacks on two oil tankers near the Strait of Hormuz, without providing any reliable proof. In responce, Zarif stated that Washington’s claim is unsurprising, warning that the United States has resorted to “Plan B” to sabotage the Islamic Republic’s diplomatic efforts.

“I warned of exactly this scenario a few months ago, not because I’m clairvoyant, but because I recognize where the B Team is coming from,” Zarif noted, warning that Trump’s “B Team” was now moving to “Plan B: Sabotage diplomacy” in an attempt to “cover up its economic terrorism” against Iran.

On Thursday, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force announced it used the Iran-made short-range and mid-altitude 'Third of Khordad' missile defense shield to bring down the US spy drone over the country's Southern coasts. The incident marked the first direct Iranian attack on US assets and came amid heightened tensions between Washington and Tehran.

The United States has confirmed that one of its reconnaissance drones was shot down by Iraniain air defenses, but denied that it intruded into Tehran’s airspace at the time.

Iran, but, announced that the country will complain to the UN Security Council as the United States has violated its airspace and claimed that its drone was in international airspace when it was shot down by Iran. The Islamic Republic has also retrieved parts of the US Global Hawk from the country's territorial waters, rejecting Washington's claim that the aircraft was targeted in international waters.

Tensions around Iran have been rising since Trump torpedoed the landmark 2015 nuclear deal and re-imposed sweeping sanctions targeting large swathes of Iran’s economy. Recently, Washington raised the stakes in the standoff, sending additional military assets – including a carrier strike group, a bomber task force, and Patriot missiles – to countries bordering Iran.
