Iran’s Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki Thursday condemned a U.S. church’s plan to burn the Quran and said this has been planned by Israel, local satellite Press TV reported.
Mottaki warned of the reactions of Muslims and the followers of other religions, the report said.
“Such actions will ignite the reaction of not only the world’s Muslims but the followers of other divine religions,” he was quoted as saying.
The U.S. officials should carry out their duties to guarantee the basic right of American Muslims and prevent the promotion of such offensive acts, Mottaki said.
The Iranian foreign minister described the plans to burn the Quran, by a U.S. priest, as “soft war” schemed by Israel following its failures in the wars against Muslims, he added according to the report.
