WASHINGTON (AFP) – President Barack Obama said Thursday there was no dispute about the facts of a US claim to have thwarted a plot by elements of the Iranian government to kill the Saudi envoy to Washington.
“Now those facts are there for all to see,” Obama said at a joint press conference with South Korean President Lee Myung-Bak.
“We would not be bringing forward a case unless we knew exactly how to support all the allegations that are contained in the indictment,” Obama said, adding there would be no dispute about what happened.
Obama said his government had contacted its allies and laid the facts before them after the discovery of the alleged plot.
“We believe that after people have analyzed them, there will not be a dispute that this is in fact what happened.
“This is not just a dangerous escalation, this is part of a pattern of dangerous and reckless behavior by the Iranian government.”
