Tehran (KNA) - A senior Iranian official says the recent US-led missile attack against Syria proved the political bankruptcy of Washington and its allies.


The strikes against Syria were carried out under a pretext similar to that used by former US Secretary of State Colin Powell, which led to Washington's invasion of Iraq in 2003, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Ali Akbar Salehi, told reporters on Monday.

During his presentation to the United Nations Security Council in February 2003, Powell claimed that Iraq might have tried to buy uranium from Niger in order to use it for non-peaceful purposes; however, after two years, it was proved that his documents were fake, Salehi added.
