From the Islamic Republic News Agency:
Foreign Ministry Spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini said on Thursday that the western countries have adopted one-sided and hostile approach to missile test fires of the Islamic Revolution's Guards Corps. ...According to the Information and Press Bureau of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Hosseini said such illogical move was a propaganda campaign in favor of the Zionist regime. ..Hosseini termed such approaches as 'unjust' and 'miscalculated' and strongly condemned them. ...Referring to provocative military maneuvers as well as excessive threats of the Zionist regime, he said the US and some of its western allies have ignored the enmity and threats of the Zionist regime which are the root-causes of insecurity and instability of the region. .....Referring to Iran's growing ties with other countries in the region as well as the country's constructive role in strengthening peace and stability in the region and the world, he said Iran's defensive military wargames are normal moves aimed at maintaining the country's combat readiness and upgrading its defense capabilities.
