Certain regional states likely to increase arms purchase: Iranian FM

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has accused the USA of creating Islamic State and fuelling instability in the Middle East.

U.S. President Donald Trump promised to impose harsh terms on Iran, indicating he will reverse the Obama Administration's attempts at rapprochement with Tehran.

"We possess documents and information showing the direct support of the USA imperialists for this highly disgusting movement (ISIS) in the region which has destroyed Islamic countries and created a wave of massacres and clashes", he added, without further elaboration.

On Tuesday, commander of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) said that Saudi Arabia has been behind June 7 terrorist attacks in Tehran.

"You [the United States] and your agents are the source of instability in the Middle East.who created [Daesh]?"

Later on in the 1970s and 1980s, Hosseinzadeh added, terrorist groups mostly aimed to target and pressure religious democracy authorities in the country.

"We have obtained accurate intelligence that Saudi Arabia supported the terrorists and asked them to carry out attacks in Iran", Maj.

"We believe that the rest of the worldwide community will make it clear - as it has done already to them - that it considers the nuclear deal as a multilateral agreement and not a bilateral agreement between Iran and the United States", Zarif said.

On Monday, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif blamed the US of disregarding its part of obligations under the nuclear deal, adding that US President Donald Trump will be forced to stick to it under global pressure.

Speaking at a roundtable discussion on Iran-Pakistan relations organized by the Center for Iranian Studies in Ankara (IRAM), Karim said that Pakistan historically has strong ties with Saudi Arabia and has also been very close to Iran.

His comments come just after jihadis armed with guns and suicide bombs attacked the Iranian Parliament in the capital city of Tehran, killing 17.

Both Qatar and Saudi Arabia are major United States allies, and have close ties to European powers.

While Saudi Arabia has been threatened by the group, officials in the region and their Western counterparts have claimed ISIS receives funding from backers inside the Kingdom as well as from other rich Middle Eastern countries.

The fear now is that if Iran is increasingly exposed to jihadi attacks, attitudes toward Sunnis - in particular the country's Sunni minority - will harden.
