Iran denies links to blast near Israel Embassy in Delhi
New Delhi: Iran's mission to India on Monday (March 8) issued a statement dismissing media reports of its involvement in a blast near the Israel mission. It said that the government and people of the Islamic Republic of Iran, as flag bearers of peace and security in the world, have been at the forefront of the fight against terrorism, warmongering and violence globally.
The statement comes more than a month after a suspicious blast took place near the Israel Embassy in New Delhi on January 29, 2021. The embassy said that the event has triggered an unfair onslaught and unsubstantiated defamatory accusations against Iran and that they strongly condemn any act which ensues intimidation and fear, disruption of order and security, and jeopardizing the lives and property of innocent people.
