Tehran Times, Nov 4, 2011 — TEHRAN – The secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council said on Friday that the documents that prove the United States’ involvement in terrorist actions and assassination plots in Iran and the region will be presented to the United Nations in the near future.

SNSC Secretary Saeed Jalili made the remarks during a speech at a demonstration held outside the former U.S. Embassy in Tehran to commemorate the 13th of Aban.

The 13th of Aban in the Iranian calendar, which corresponds to November 4, is Iran’s national day of struggle against the global arrogance (imperialist powers) and the anniversary of the university students’ seizure of the U.S. embassy in Tehran, which was called the Den of Spies, in 1979. It is also the anniversary of the exile of the late Imam Khomeini, the Founder of the Islamic Republic, in 1964.

Jalili said, “Iran’s Ambassador to the UN (Mohammad Khazaii), in a letter that will be sent to UN Secretary General (Ban Ki-moon)… will ask him to provide other countries with documents” that show the role of the U.S. in directing terrorists and providing financial assistance to them and to take legal action against Washington.

Islamic Iran will show the international community that the U.S. is the main supporter of state terrorism in the world, he stated.

Jalili added, “The U.S. has overtly employed its forces to carry out assassinations and acts of sabotage against Iran and other countries, but, as the Supreme Leader has said, we will discredit the U.S. through the documents we have. And we support the 99 percent, who are opposed to the U.S. policies in and outside the country, with full strength and will file a lawsuit against officials of this country.”

Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said on Wednesday that Iran has one hundred indisputable documents that prove the United States’ involvement in terrorist actions in Iran and the region and will release them to the public.

Jalili also said, “The assertions that we are making today are nothing new, and the passive stance that the U.S. has adopted today is a response to the measures taken by Islamic Iran.”

“Over the past two years, we have repeatedly written to the UN and the U.S. raising the issue of documents showing the U.S. is a terrorist, and the measures that the U.S. is taking today are passive and are meant to (help it) avoid trial,” he added. 

“On the occasion of the 13th of Aban, we will” submit these documents to officials at the Swiss Embassy, Jalili announced.

Iran and the United States do not have diplomatic relations, and the Swiss Embassy in Tehran hosts the U.S. Interests Section in Iran.

The SNSC Secretary added, “The U.S. is seeking to target the countries and the people that are opposed to the U.S. through guiding terrorists.”

The Iranian Foreign Ministry summoned Swiss Charge d’Affaires Georg Steiner on Friday.

Students commemorate U.S. embassy seizure

Students across the country took to the streets on Friday to commemorate the anniversary of the seizure of the U.S. embassy in Tehran in 1979.

In Tehran, students converged on Taleqani Street where the former U.S. embassy is located and chanted slogans: “Down with USA” and “Down with Israel.”

The students also expressed support for the popular uprisings in the Arab world and carried placards showing their solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street protestors.

Some placards, written in English, read: “Wall Street = War Street”.

At the end of the event in Tehran, the demonstrators issued a statement criticizing U.S. policies.
