TEHRAN -- Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri has called on the Majlis to adopt a legislation on how to counter the modern methods of espionage.

Speaking at a gathering of the armed forces personnel on Saturday, Jazayeri said individuals who have links with some foreign radio and television networks are clearly spying on Iran in a modern way.
He said most of these networks are affiliated to the U.S., Britain and Israel.
Why the relevant bodies do not deal with these people and if there is a need for related legislations, why the Majlis does not legislate on the issue, he asked.
Certain people, who are taking the most advantage of the country’s ‘free and secure’ atmosphere are providing Israeli media outlets with deceptive information about the country as part of a plot to topple the Islamic Republic’s system, he said.
The enemy is seriously making efforts to sabotage the Islamic system, he noted
