U.S. accusations just a ‘ridiculous show’: MP

February 4, 2018

TEHRAN – A senior Iranian lawmaker says accusations by the U.S. that Iran provides Yemen’s Houthi fighters with ballistic missiles are just a “political and ridiculous show”.

“The U.S. move to display the missiles and attribute them to Iran is a political and ridiculous show… which seeks two purposes,” Alaeddin Boroujerdi, chairman of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, told IRNA on Friday.

He said U.S. President Donald Trump aims to undermine Tehran’s missile capabilities and prepare the ground for involvement in the issue which “is definitely a red line for the Islamic Republic of Iran.”
