Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi says Iranians will never forget the downing of a commercial flight by a US Navy guided-missile cruiser in the Persian Gulf waters in a “barbaric operation” in 1988 and the killing of 290 innocent civilians.
“Years after the appalling tragedy and barbaric attack, the pain and agony caused by the US crime has not dissipated,” Qassemi said in a statement on Tuesday, marking the 30th anniversary of a US missile attack on a commercial Iranian flight in southern Iran.
The “disgraceful smear” is still on the face of the US government, which does not feel ashamed for blatant violations of international law and conventions, he added, Tasnim News Agency reported.
