Taleban attack on Iran's consulate invalidates UK, U.S. claims: official

TEHRAN, Jul 15 (Mehr News Agency)-- An Iranian Foreign Ministry official, speaking under the condition of anonymity, condemned bomb attack on Iranian consulate in Kandahar, Afghanistan, and blamed the Taleban for the terrorist act.

He said this attack clearly invalidates UK and U.S. claims that Iran supports insurgent attacks in Afghanistan.

The official explained that this is the second time that Taleban targets Iranian interests in Afghanistan.

Recently some U.S. and UK experts circles, including Jane's Terrorism & Security Monitor have questioned U.S. Army claims that Iran supports anti-government groups in Afghanistan, saying that there is no evidence to that effect.
