Iranian Ambassador to Denmark Morteza Moradian lambasted the European states for hosting terrorist and separatist groups and sanctioning the countries, like Iran, which has been a victim of terrorism.

RNA - "Such contradictory and double-standard attitudes indicate instrumental use of terrorism. Terrorism is not annihilated with double-standard methods," Moradian wrote on his Instagram page on Saturday night.

He underlined Iran's strenuous efforts to prevent spread of terrorist and extremist activities in the region and the world, saying, "Iran's pioneering role in the fight against terrorism is an undeniable reality."

"Europe cannot escape the responsibility for hosting and supporting the terrorists by raising unreal allegations against Iran," Moradian said.

EU member states agreed to impose sanctions targeting Tehran’s intelligence services for what they claimed as involvement in a series of alleged assassination plots across Europe last year.

The foreign minister of one of the European countries, Denmark’s Anders Samuelsen, revealed the decision on Twitter.

Without providing any evidence, Danish police in October linked the so-called Iranian intelligence officers to attacking a person in the country.

According to Fars News Agancy, the Iranian foreign ministry strongly dismissed the claims as a plot against the growing Iran-Europe relations in the current sensitive situation.

"Such allegations are in line with the conspiracies and plots of Iran's enemies who cannot stand the good and growing relations between Tehran and Europe in the current special situation," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said at the time.

Also, after the EU's decision to sanction Iran, Qassemi condemned the "EU's irrational and surprising decision on the basis of unfounded allegations", describing it as a sign of their dishonesty.

He added that the EU had let free the criminal members of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK also known as MKO, NCRI or PMOI) and al-Ahwaziyeh terrorist groups, but raises allegations against Iran which plays a pioneering role in the fight against terrorism in the region, and to which Europe owes its security.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran will adopt the necessary measures in response to this move within the framework of reciprocal acts," Qassemi said.

The 'al-Ahwaziyeh', which receives support mainly from Saudi Arabia, is the terrorist group which claimed responsibility for the September attack on a military parade in Ahwaz, Southwest of Iran, killing 26 and wounding 69 others.
