Iran Says U.S. Plot Suspect Is a member of MKO

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has said that Tehran has sent a letter to the United Nations complaining about U.S. accusations Iran was behind a plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to Washington.

Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said the letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon charges the plot is part of a multi-pronged U.S. strategy to smear Tehran.

Iran’s official Press TV reported that the letter says the man whom U.S. prosecutors have identified as an Iranian military official in the alleged plot is actually a member of the exiled Iranian rebel group Mujahideen Khalq Organisation.
