The Iranian government rejected this Sunday (07.17.2022) the claims made against Tehran during the visit of US President Joe Biden to the Middle East and stated that Washington seeks to create tension and crisis in the region, a few hours after the president left Saudi Arabia, where he participated in various activities and was the last stop on his trip.

Alluding to Iran, Biden told an audience of Arab leaders on Saturday that the United States “will not tolerate one country attempting to dominate another in the region through military buildup, incursion and/or threats.” Biden also declared that the North American power “will not leave” the Middle East leaving “a vacuum that could be filled by China, Russia or Iran”.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Naser Kanani said that “these false claims are in line with the continuation of Washington’s seditious and tension-generating policy in the region,” the ministry’s official website reported. “The American president has once again resorted to the failed policy of Iranophobia and it has failed,” he added.

The spokesman added that the United States has been an unlimited supporter of Israel for decades, meaning that it is the main partner in the “continued occupation of Palestinian land, the daily crimes of the Israeli regime against Palestinians, and the systematic violation of their human rights”. Instead, he highlighted Iran’s “constructive policy” in welcoming dialogue with its neighbors.

Several Arab leaders and Biden held a meeting on Saturday in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, after which they announced that they will reinforce the joint deterrence capacity “against the growing threat” posed by unmanned aerial devices, a probable reference to Iran, which on Friday presented ships capable of carrying drones.

The United States and Israel accuse Iran of using drones and missiles to attack US forces and ships linked to Israel in the Gulf, in order to destabilize the region. Precisely during his visit to Israel, Biden signed an agreement against Tehran, forming a common front to ensure that Iran “never” acquires nuclear weapons.
