Iran leading advocate of int’l anti-cyber terrorism combat – Foreign Ministry

[ 26 March 2016 13:51 ]

Tehran. Suleyman Farzaliyev – APA. Foreign Ministry spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari stressed that Iran has never considered actions in cyber spaces which would threaten other countries, IRNA reported.

 

Jaberi Ansari made the remarks here on Saturday while commenting on indictment of seven Iranians by the US Justice Department over what it referred to as 'cyber attack'.

 

The US Justice Department on Thursday announced it has indicted seven Iranians, claiming they had disrupted the networks of the US banks during years of 2011 to 2013.

 

The Islamic Republic of Iran is the one country which has suffered most damage because of complicated cyber attacks by certain governments, said the diplomat, stressing that Tehran has always been a pioneer in advocating international efforts to fight cyber crimes.

 

Iran stresses importance of regularization of cyber space under the supervision of all governments, he underlined.

 

Iran is never for threatening actions in cyber space, he stressed.

 

The US government, whose cyber attacks on Iran's peaceful nuclear facilities put lives of millions of innocent people in danger, lacks credibility to accuse nationals of other countries including in Iran of such actions, he stressed.
