Tehran Dismisses Pompeo’s Unfounded Accusations

Iran described as "unfounded" accusations by new US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo over Tehran's "ambition to dominate the Middle East".
"The US secretary of state's remarks on the presence and role of the Islamic Republic of Iran in certain countries in the region are a repetition of absurd and unfounded accusations," Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Bahram Qasemi said in a statement on Monday.
He said "Iran's presence in Syria and Iraq is in response to requests from the two countries' governments and is part of the fight against terrorism in the region", ISNA reported.
"This assistance will continue as long as [these] governments need help in this fight," he said.
