Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili exposes documents on US acts of terror during his speech for a gathering of hundreds of thousands of Iranians in the capital city of Tehran, November 4, 2011.
Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili has shown two documents pointing to US involvement in acts of terror, insisting that Washington is the chief perpetrator of terror across the globe utilizing terrorism as a tool to achieve its policy objectives, Press TV reports.
Jalili, who was addressing a massive crowd of people rallying in Tehran to commemorate the 1979 anniversary of takeover of the US embassy by Iranian students, displayed two sets of documents, which he said implicated the American government for having ties with known terror groups and elements.
Iran has irrefutable evidence that expose the official involvement of the United States government in anti-Iran planning and the dispatching of elements to conduct acts of sabotage and terror in Iran and other regional countries, said the senior Iranian official.
The documents show how Washington has been directing and funding terrorist rings to achieve its regional objectives, the top security official noted.
Jalili emphasized that based on the existing evidence, Tehran reserves the right to bring legal cases against the US in both Iranian and international courts of law.
He went on to say that Iran will submit the documents to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon for circulation among member states at the United Nations.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Jalili pointed to the spreading tide of anti-capitalism movement across America and said that US capitalism was principally set up based on terrorism.
The Iranian official also noted that the US national interests have been held hostage to the interests of the greedy one percent of its population and top American leaders that have spent billions of dollars on wars. He called on Washington to be more accountable to the American public for all the wars it has waged across the globe, far from its borders.
