Iran: WikiLeaks documents aim to protect Israel
Tehran on Tuesday cast doubt on the authenticity of documents published by WikiLeaks and told its Arab neighbors not to fall into the whistleblower's "trap." "This is a very suspicious plot. They have planted some Western and US crimes in them to present them as credible," Iran's foreign ministry spokesman Ramin said, according to AFP.
But "the enemies of the Islamic world are pursuing a project of Iranophobia and disunity. This project only protects the interests of the Zionist regime and its supporters," he said. "So the countries in the region must be aware not to fall into this trap and show in practice that these plots will never have any results and convince public opinion in practice by cooperation and unity," he said.
On Monday, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the documents underline the broader world's concern about Iran's nuclear program. Mehmanparast slammed her, saying Clinton's comments cast doubt on the validity of the leaked cables.
"The fact that of all these documents Ms Clinton focuses on the ones involving Arab countries' concern about Iran's nuclear activities makes us suspicious about their authenticity," he said.
