Iran ‘most significant’ threat to world: Canada PM

AFP: Iran is the “most significant” threat to world peace and security, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Friday after the US accused Tehran of plotting to kill the Saudi ambassador to Washington.

OTTAWA (AFP) — Iran is the “most significant” threat to world peace and security, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Friday after the US accused Tehran of plotting to kill the Saudi ambassador to Washington.

“We have no quarrel with the Iranian people, but the regime in Tehran represents probably the most significant threat in the world to global peace and security,” Harper said.

This week, Canada’s Foreign Minister John Baird said Ottawa and its partners were considering “consequences” for Iran over the alleged plot.

“Canada condemns this planned attack on the Saudi ambassador on US soil,” Baird said.

“Indications of the Iranian regime’s involvement are extremely serious. Canada will work with our international partners in considering the consequences for Iran’s actions.”

Iran has strongly denied any involvement in what the US says was a plot by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ elite Quds force to kill the Saudi envoy by hiring assassins from a Mexican drug cartel for $1.5 million.
