According to the Iran Press report, if you want to define Europe and the US, some of Europeans and these three countries, in particular, are in the front line of animosity against the Iranian nation.

"The Americans always lie and utter untrue and false statements," the Iranian commander added.

Reminding the enemy's plots to tear up Iran's sovereignty and territorial integrity during imposed 8 years of war, Salami reiterated: "Thanks to wise and heavenly leadership, the focus of the enemy on Iran vanished and broke away soon after the war, but the strategy of enemy maintained and consequently, the defence has continued until now but transformed and changed its appearance."        

Earlier, the leaders of France, Germany, and Britain claimed that Iran carried out this month's attack on Saudi Arabian oil infrastructure and called on Tehran to choose dialogue over what they called further provocation.

Iran's answer to this claim was harsh and critical and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani criticized the E3 for their claim and rejected the statement as 'groundless blame game'.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi said on Monday that the British government, instead of [making] fruitless efforts against the Islamic Republic of Iran, should take action to stop selling lethal weapons to Saudi Arabia, which is a demand of many people in the world, and should release itself from the accusation of committing war crimes against the people of Yemen". 212/ 207
