Iran slams West for lecturer assassination


The secretary of IRI's Supreme National Security Council has condemned the West and G5+1 for the terrorist attack which led to martyrdom of an Iranian lecturer.

"Last week on the same day terrorists targeted two Iranian scientists and one of them was martyred," Jalili said.

"Iranian nation has been the biggest victim of terrorism," Jalili said.

"Iran has lost 1,300 of its citizens because of the terrorist attacks of Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) who are supported by the west," he added.

"Now the same trend is being repeated," the secretary of the SNSC said.

Jalili and EU Foreign Affairs Chief Catherine Ashton opened the talks between Iran and the G5+1 -- Britain, China, France, Russia, and America plus Germany -- in Geneva on Monday.

Dialogue between Iran and the G5+1 has been stalled since October 1, 2009, when the two sides met in Geneva.
