'Iran docs create political shock in US'
Member of Iran's Majlis (parliament) National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Parviz Sorouri
An Iranian lawmaker says Tehran's documents showing US involvement in acts of terror against Iran and other world countries have created political shockwaves in Washington.
Member of Iran's Majlis (parliament) National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Parviz Sorouri told Fars News Agency on Monday that the announcement that Iran would be releasing 100 documents as proof of US involvement in terrorist activities sent political shockwaves across the country.
He added that American politicians were caught by surprise by Iran's active diplomacy.
On November 4, Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili displayed two sets of documents, which he said would prove that the US government had ties with infamous terrorist groups and elements.
Jalili added that Tehran has solid evidence that American officials sent saboteurs and their elements to carry out acts of terror in Iran and other regional countries.
He said Tehran reserves the right to take legal action against the US in both Iranian and international courts, adding that Iran would submit the documents to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon for circulation among UN member states.
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei first revealed that Iran is in possession of 100 documents implicating the US for involvement in terrorist acts on November 2.
