Iran dismisses alleged France attack as 'ploy'

, Comments 0 comments

Iran's foreign minister on Monday dismissed a plot to attack an Iranian opposition rally in France as a "false flag ploy" designed to overshadow a tour by his country's president to Europe.

"How convenient: Just as we embark on a presidential visit to Europe, an alleged Iranian operation and its 'plotters' arrested," Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted, referring to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's tour of European countries that began on Monday.

"Iran unequivocally condemns all violence and terror anywhere, and is ready to work with all concerned to uncover what is a sinister false flag ploy."
