Spokeswoman Raps Canada's "Irrational" Stances on Iran
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham deplored a recent anti-Iran statement by Canada's administration, saying that Ottawa has been adhering to the Zionist regime of Israel's stances in its war-mongering rhetoric.
"Continuation of a radical position against Iran by Canadian authorities, especially under the current conditions, indicates that the Canadian government's approach towards Iran does not have any rational basis," Afkham said on Wednesday.
She further slammed Canada for following Israel's lead in taking anti-Iran stances, saying that such rhetoric has "led to the isolation of the country's conservative government within the international community and even among its closest traditional partners."
Afkham urged that "Canadian authorities had better embrace rationality and logic instead of unilateralism and adherence to the Zionist regime."
Canada's Foreign Ministry released a statement after Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France, and Germany) concluded their nuclear talks on July 14.
In the statement, Canada accused Iran of being a "significant threat to international peace and security".
