Speaking at the UN Security Council on Thursday, Iran's permanent representative Mohammed Khazaee said, "Tehran condemns terrorism in any form and manifestation", and has not been involved in the terrorist attack in Bulgaria.
Evening of July 18, at the airport in Burgas, a tourist bus with a group of Israelis was blown up, resulting in six deaths, more than 30 injured, RIA Novosti reported.
"This terrorist operation could be planned and carried out only by the same regime, the short story of which is full of terrorist operations and attacks aimed at involving others into their own political games", Khazaee said during Security Council open debate on Middle East issues.
"Iran is the victim of such Israeli operations, and the attack on Iranian nuclear scientists is fresh in my memory", he said, referring to the murder of four physicists in 2010 in Iran.
Earlier, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said the responsibility for the attack was on the Iranian-backed group "Hezbollah". Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated Iran stood behind the tragedy. Netanyahu said that over the past few months, Iran has tried to attack Israelis in Thailand, India, Georgia, Kenya and Cyprus. He added that Israel would respond to Iranian terror.
The same accusations were made earlier at the UN Security Council meeting on the Middle East by the Permanent Representative of Israel Chaim Waxman. In response Khazaee called them "baseless", the RBC reported.
