Iran rejects Morocco's accusations on ties with Polisario Front




(MENAFN) Iran firmly rejected Morocco's accusations of ties between Tehran's Embassy in Algeria and the Polisario Front, a Western Sahara separatist movement.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Wednesday that as the accusations are "completely baseless" and that Iran respects the sovereignty of all countries.

He also claimed that severing ties with Iran came "in response to Iran's involvement, through Hezbollah, in allying itself with the Polisario over the past two years in order to target the security and higher interests of Morocco."

"We need to clearly emphasize once again that one of the most fundamental principles of the Islamic Republic of Iran's foreign policy in its relations with other governments and countries in the world has been and will continue to be deep respect for their sovereignty and security as well as non-interference in the domestic affairs of other states."
