Iran rejects cooperation with US in fight against ISIS
Iranian officials rejected claims that Iran was working with US in airstrikes against ISIS, and calls US policy of military action in the Middle East a “double standard.”
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian told Iranian TV on Monday that Iran will not work alongside the US in the fight against ISIS, Fars news reported.
“We have no plans to for joint work with the US against Daesh (ISIS), but we will continue our help and consultations at the request of the Iraqi and Syrians governments,” he said.
In his interview, he affirmed that Iran will continue its support of countries in the Middle East who are endangered by extremist groups like ISIS. He stressed, however, that they would not be working alongside US forces, who they believe are engaged in a “double-standard policy” against terrorists in the region.
