TEHRAN, Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Friday the U.S. "fabrication of stories" about a "politically bankrupt element, a known terrorist and a coup plotter" against independent states is a "deceptive bid to escape international responsibilities."

Nasser Kanaani made the remark via Twitter, in reaction to the U.S. Justice Department's move to charge a member of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps with "plotting to assassinate" John Bolton, former U.S. national security adviser.

He slammed Washington for keep leveling the "baseless" accusations against Tehran, saying "such fanfares won't whitewash U.S. regime's image, but make Iranians and the world more resentful of it."

In a separate statement published on the ministry's website on Thursday, Kanaani said such moves are a continuation of Washington's failed policy of spreading Iranophobia, adding Iran firmly warns against any action against its nationals based on such "ridiculous" accusations. Enditem
