Iran accuses Saudi Arabia of promoting 'terrorism' in its border provinces

Earlier, Iranian Parliamentary Speaker Ali Larijani accused Washington of being an ally of Islamic State in the region. About 10:30 a.m., the modern, sloping Parliament building, a symbol of the democratic element in the Islamic Republic's complicated power structure, along with the more traditionally conceived mausoleum of the regime's clerical founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, were the object of coordinated assaults by gunmen and suicide bombers.

The Daesh Takfiri terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has accused the U.S. of creating Islamic State and fuelling instability in the Middle East.

At least six of the people on the Arab states blacklist are already named on the U.N. Security Council al Qaeda and Islamic State sanctions list, which subjects them to a global asset freeze, travel ban and arms embargo.

And the Iranian Fars news agency quoted him saying: "The American government is against an independent Iran".

The Leader also noted that the recent accusations by US President Donald Trump over Iran supporting terrorism were preposterous.

The top Iranian diplomat also exchanged views on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini at Oslo Grand Hotel.

Ayatollah Khamenei's hardline loyalists, drawn from among Islamists and the Revolutionary Guards, fear normalisation of ties with the USA might weaken their position.

"Two of the killed criminals were foreign nationals... while the identity of other members is being investigated", Maleki said, adding that weapons and an IS flag were seized during the raid. If U.S. rates rise, Saudi Arabia is seen likely to follow suit with its rates because the country's currency is pegged to the dollar.

Tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia have escalated as Iran's Revolutionary Guards blamed the deadly 7 June Tehran attack on Saudi Arabia.

Iran's intelligence ministry said the attackers were Iranians who had joined ISIS in Iraq and Syria and returned home to carry out the attack.

The sophisticated ISIS attack in Tehran is a major operational success for the group.
