Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Bahram Qassemi, said on Wednesday that France’s “wrong”policies is what led to the war in Syria.
“Everyone knows that France is itself one of the countries whose wrong policies have created the current crisis in Syria and complicated the worrying and dire situation there,” he said.
The comments were out of the French Foreign Minister’s Jean-Marc Ayrault who blamed the Syrian war on Iran’s support for Syria.
“Unfortunately the French foreign minister’s remarks are unrealistic and unexpected, despite the understanding he should have about regional and international affairs,” Qassemi added.
Qassemi advised Ayrault to study the history of the region’s past few decades, especially the role of some French statesmen in supporting and arming criminals like former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein during the 1980-1988 war on Iran, instead of making false and uncalled-for remarks.
