US’ formation of Iran Action Group is ‘psychological war’ – FM spokesperson


Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Bahram Ghasemi hit back at the formation of Iran Action Group (IAG) unveiled by the US State Department on August 16, at his weekly press conference in Tehran on Monday.

“It is more of a psychological war and psychological game which is being pursued by the war-mongering team of the US administration,” said Ghasemi, before alluding to the IAG formation’s coincidence with August 19, which saw Iran’s then-democratic government overthrown through a coup masterminded by the US and the UK in 1953.

“It will not get them anywhere,” concluded Ghasemi.

On August 16, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the formation of IAG responsible with “directing, reviewing, and coordinating all aspects of the State Department’s Iran-related activity,” aiming to change Iran’s behaviour and making it act like “a normal state.”
