Earlier last week an article entitled “Iran ex-president hints at divisions over support for Bashar a–Assad appeared in the Financial Times, which quoted Rafsanjani as saying:
“God bless the people of Syria . . . they were subjected to chemical weapons by their own government and now they have to expect a foreign invasion…”
Iran’s former president, has publicly denied making the comments attributed to him in the Financial Times article.
“Recent quotes (attributed) to me regarding Syria… are absolutely not true,” Rafsanjani was quoted as telling a crowd of war veteran families on Saturday.
Bill Bard says:
FT blatantly lying again.
