"Today, the US government, contrary to its anti-terrorism slogans and its inclusion of the Mujahedeen Khalq Organization on its list of terrorist groups, strikes a deal with the same terrorists in order to confront Iran," he said.
"The US military presence in the Middle East region has brought about particular conditions for threatening the sovereignty and independence of governments, changing geography of the region and borders of regional states," he added.
The MP reiterated that the US and British military attack on
Iraq was in violation of international regulations and the UN Charter and in defiance of world governments and nations under pretext of fighting Saddam Hussein's dictatorial regime, arrogance, terrorism and weapons of mass destruction.
The attack was an indication of an aggression against international relations, he added.
"The US-British claims of advocating freedom and human rights and rule of democracy and saving the Iraqi people from the yoke of Saddam Hussein's dictatorship are sheer lies," Qanbari said.
Pointing to the threats against Iran, the MP said, "Iran should take necessary measures to make the utmost achievements with the least costs. It should seize opportunities to turn such threats into new chances."
He urged Iranian officials to adopt necessary measures to neutralize any plots and possible attack on Iran under current dangerous and critical situation in the region and the world as a result of a unipolar world and rule of power instead of logic and wisdom.
