Hey mister! Would you like to buy a suspension bridge? From AFP, with thanks to Kemaste:
TEHRAN, Nov 28 (AFP) – Iran said Sunday that is has never allowed any terrorists to cross into Iraq from its territory and offered its help to restore security in its neighbour, including the training of police and border guards.
“Iran has never permitted the transit of terrorists to Iraq or any other country from its own territory,” deputy interior minister Ali-Asghar Ahmadi told reporters two days before Iran is due to host a regional meeting on Iraq….
“No leader of Al-Qaeda is in Iran,” added the minister, responding to frequent allegations from the United States that Iran has supported or harboured members of the militant network.
The official also condemned the actions of an Iranian group that has been present at officially-organised events to enlist volunteers for suicide operations in Iraq, Israel and elsewhere.
“This is not legal,” he said. “If the activity of these individuals stays theoretical, that is up to them, but if they move into action, we will prevent them. We cannot accept such things in Iran.”
“The Islamic republic of Iran has never been and is not a place of activity for terrorist groups,” he insisted, adding that Iraqi officials “have never shown proof of the crossing of terrorists from Iran”.
“Iran is ready to help train Iraqi police and border guards and cooperate with Iraq to control the border,” he added.
“Yes,” said the fox to the hens, “I will be quite happy to help you rebuild your henhouse.”
