Iran Captures, Kills Islamic State Members Responsible For Terrorist Attack Last
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Monday accused the US of creating the Islamic State militant group (ISIS), and called its war on the jihadist group "a lie".
"We have intelligence that Saudi Arabia is actively engaged in promoting terrorist groups operating on the eastern side of Iran in Balochistan", Zarif said.
"On the Western side, the same type of activity is being undertaken", Zarif said.
Last month, the US Senate's Foreign Relations Committee voted in favor of legislation that would authorize Trump to impose new sanctions on Iran over its missile program, which Tehran has repeatedly said is defensive.
Two days later, suicide bombings and shootings in Tehran killed 17 people.
The top Iranian diplomat also sat down with a number of intellectuals and researchers from Europe and the United States on Tuesday and reviewed issues pertaining to regional and global developments.
The Iranian leader also said the USA and Saudi Arabia are in partnership when it comes to funding Sunni militants.
"America is a terrorist country and backs terrorism. therefore, we can not normalise ties with such country", he said.
Baluchistan province is home to a Sunni population who form a minority in majority Shia Iran.
Earlier, Iranian Parliamentary Speaker Ali Larijani accused Washington of being an ally of Islamic State in the region.
On Tuesday, commander of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) said that Saudi Arabia has been behind June 7 terrorist attacks in Tehran.
Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE are blockading Qatar and have closed off airspace to Qatar Airways, a decision which Saudi Arabia insists has been taken to protect its citizens from "threats".
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Monday blamed the United States for instability in the Middle East and said Washington's fight against the Islamic State militant group was "a lie".
"We believe that the rest of the global 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.
