TEHRAN (Iran News) –For centuries the British colonialists have tried to dominate Iran through their influence on the rulers in Iran and they have been behind any plots against Iran through the history and for this reason Iranians do not trust on the British, known as the Old Fox, and they use to blame the British over any plot in the country because they are well aware that the British are red handed and in recent riots and protests in the country once again London played its role but this time in different way.
Since the beginning of the Islamic Revolution, Iranians have thwarted any plot engineered by the British and many of their spies have been fallen in the trap of the Iranian intelligence services and for this reason the British have turned to the media challenge with Iran and spreading different baseless accusations against the Islamic Republic of Iran in order to paint a negative picture of the Islamic Revolution and create a rift among Iranians on what the official source of Iran announces.
We know some anti-revolutionary media outlets are placed in the UK and they are actually supported by the London government and even many anti-revolutionary persons are also living in the UK.
In recent months London tried to paint a negative and dreadful picture of the Islamic Revolution of Iran during the riots that were massively covered by the London-based anti-Islamic Revolution media and since their efforts were in vain and London failed to reap from what it had planted, it has returned to the same old story of spreading false accusations against Iran.
The British navy on Thursday claimed about the seizure of a boat smuggling Iranian weapons, including anti-tank missiles, off the coast of the Gulf of Oman in a joint operation with U.S. forces and this claim was strongly rejected by Tehran.
“The countries that have caused the death of [the Yemeni] people and the destruction of Yemen by sending billions of dollars worth of weapons to the [Saudi-led] war coalition cannot exonerate themselves by accusing others,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani said.
He said the main warmongering countries and the biggest exporters of weapons and equipment to critical zones in the world are “making false claims and spreading fake news” to mislead the global public opinion.
The Iranian spokesperson urged these countries to end their “opportunistic” approaches in the Saudi-led war on Yemen instead of shirking their responsibility in the “imposed war against the defenseless and oppressed people of Yemen.”
Britain’s Royal Navy claimed on Thursday that an Iranian boat, traveling south from Iran at high speed during the hours of darkness, was intercepted by forces from British frigate HMS Lancaster before it could navigate back to Iranian territorial waters on February 23.
According to the Bahrain-based United States Fifth Fleet, the seizure took place along a route historically used to smuggle weapons to Yemen.
Iran has on several occasions dismissed Western claims of smuggling arms to Yemen, reaffirming its support for a political solution not a military one to the conflict in the Arab country.
In a statement on Thursday, Kanaani rejected the claims that in January French naval forces had seized thousands of Iranian-supplied weapons and ammunition headed to Yemen as politically-motivated.
A report by the Oxfam charity revealed in January that weapons supplied by the United Kingdom and the United States to the Saudi-led coalition in war-torn Yemen killed at least 839 civilians and wounded 1,775 others in just over a year.
The report revealed that the Saudi-led coalition used weapons supplied solely by the UK and the US in hundreds of attacks targeting civilians in the Arab country between January 2021 and the end of February 2022.
There have been many reports even by the British media about the UK’s weapons supply to the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen but London has never accepted it despite clear crystal evidences and now it has tried to play the blame game with Iran and blame Iran for arms supply to Yemen while everybody knows it well that this is the British and even other Western countries that provide the Saudi-led coalition forces with arms.
Of course Iranians historically are aware of this game of the Old Fox and will give no damn to such baseless accusations because when the West is in weaker position against the Islamic Revolution of Iran, it resorts to such funny blame games.
If we have a glance at the recent political developments regarding Iran, whenever Iran’s nuclear issue reaches a decisive moment, such accusations are intensified and this is not a new thing. As the board of governors of the IAEA is preparing for it crucial meeting about Iran’s peaceful nuclear program, once again such baseless accusation is raised against Tehran. Of course each time one of the Western states or their allies raises such claim and this time it is the UK’s turn while before the past meeting of the BOG of IAEA, it was the U.S. and Israel which raised claims of discovering arms supply and other accusations.
So Tehran is ready for any false accusation on the eve of any critical and decisive moment and it will not be affected by such baseless claims and this type of accusation has become old and threadbare and the West should know that Tehran will not retreat from its right in having peaceful nuclear program and they have better to come to terms with Tehran rather than tabling such stupid claims and the British should also know that Iranians know them too well to think much of them.
