Iran's Foreign Ministry on Saturday summoned the Swiss ambassador, whose country represents the U.S. interests in Iran, over the U.S. president's allegations against the Islamic Republic after a recent attack on a military base used by the coalition forces in Iraq.

"The Swiss envoy was told that instead of accusing others, the U.S. president must accept the U.S. wrong policies on its illegal presence in Iraq and the killing of the Iraqi commanders and soldiers, which have become the main reason for the Iraqi people's hatred towards America," said Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi on Saturday.

"It was emphasized that U.S. wrong policies in Iraq have created the current tensions, and that the U.S. officials, Mr. Trump in particular, could not shirk responsibility by making groundless and dangerous remarks," he added.

The U.S. has claimed that Iranian-backed forces in Iraq have been behind the recent missile attack on the military base that killed a British and two U.S. service members in Camp Taji in Iraq.
