CIA Claim of Al-Qaeda-Iran Ties Aims to Appease Saudis

CIA Claim of Al-Qaeda-Iran Ties Aims to Appease Saudis

Zarif's remarks came after the Central Intelligence Agency published about 47,000 classified documents, including an al-Qaeda reported which, in particular, claimed that "anyone who wants to strike America, Iran is ready to support him and help him with their frank and clear rhetoric".

Iran's Foreign Minister has claimed America is not telling the full truth about the 9/11 terror attack, calling it "fake news".

The documents are said to have been obtained during assassination of Osama bin Laden, founder of al-Qaeda terrorist group during operations in 2011.

The report was released by the Long War Journal, a publication backed by the Washington-based Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), a think tank fiercely critical of Iran and skeptical of its nuclear deal with world powers.

Most of the report is in Arabic in which it is claimed that Iran offered al Qaeda help, in the form of "money, arms".

The official made the remarks in response to the alleged documents released on al-Qaeda terrorist group.

Despite his initial hard stance on Riyadh during his election campaign for presidency previous year, Trump has turned a blind eye on the oil-rich kingdom's role in the 9/11 disaster and has gone so far as to sign arms deals worth hundreds of billions of dollars with the Arab country.
