Iran’s Foreign Ministry has dismissed the comments from Spokeswoman for the US Department of State Morgan Ortagus who described the clues to the US’ role in creation of the coronavirus as “conspiracy theories”.
In a post on its Twitter account on Monday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran rejected the baseless comments from Ortagus who has described as part of the “conspiracy theories” the remarks made by Leader of Iran’s Revolution about Washington’s possible role in creating COVID-19.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry has called on the US State Department spokesperson to refer to an article published by Global Research.
“If the accusations made by the world against the US government over the coronavirus are ‘conspiracy theories invented by Iran’, then you don’t need to go anywhere far; just answer part of the questions published in the ‘Global Research’,” said the tweet.
It came after Ortagus refuted Iran supreme leader’s remarks about the US’ role in the creation of COVID-19 which she referred to as the “Wuhan Virus”.
The American spokeswoman has said that the “conspiracy theories about the Wuhan Virus” by the Leader of Iran’s Revolution are harmful, irresponsible, and 100 percent false.
On March 23 in a speech broadcast live to the Iranian nation, Iran supreme leader turned down the US’ offer of help in dealing with the coronavirus epidemic in Iran, saying such disease may have been created by the US as part of its hostile plots against Iranians.
