TEHRAN - Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani questioned the US-led coalition against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant terrorist group, and said Washington's theatrical moves against terrorism are "ridiculous".

Addressing an open session of the parliament in Tehran on Sunday, Larijani said it is ridiculous to see that the US with its black record is now in a radical shift of orientation and direction killing itself on the path of fighting terrorism, because "basically, the structure of the US authoritarianism is interwoven with the phenomenon of terrorism, whether in Afghanistan and Pakistan or in Iraq and Syria".
He referred to the recent remarks by Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on the so-called US coalition against ISIL terrorists, and said Ayatollah Khamenei has underlined his distrust in Washington's comments on campaign against terrorism and rejected Iran's participation in such a coalition.
