According to a spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry, the United States is exaggerating the threat of Iran to the world in order to start a Cold War against the Persian nation:

TEHRAN -- By exaggerating the alleged Iranian threat to the world,
Washington is actually seeking to trigger a new cold war against Iran, Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad-Ali Hosseini said here on Tuesday.
“Russia and the majority of the European countries know that the United States has challenged their security, independence, and national interests within the framework of its unilateral and authoritarian policies,” Hosseini added.

He made the remarks in response to the recent statements of U.S. President George W. Bush, who had underlined the necessity of establishing a missile system in Europe to counter the alleged Iranian threat.

It is quite clear to the world that such fake and baseless claims can never benefit U.S. officials, Hosseini noted.

Iran has an ancient civilization and thus has never needed foreign
countries to develop and rejects all unfair suggestions and interference, he stated.

As for the annual report of the U.S. State Department about terrorism, Hosseini said that the U.S. agents’ daily-increasing torture of prisoners in Iraq, Guantanamo, and secret prisons in Europe, as well as Washington’s all-out support for the Zionist regime in last summer’s war against Lebanon, will make it clear that U.S. officials are in no position to compile such reports on terrorism.
