“He has no idea of politics apart from bitter talk that emanates from a lack of foresight ... His remarks do not deserve a response, because he is a delusional, naive person, who never talks, but with lies and bitterness,” Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi was quoted as saying.

“Iran respects all its neighbours ... Tehran invites all regional countries, especially some ill-wishers and obstinate enemies to dialogue and tolerance.”
