Tehran calls US' statement on terror attack 'repugnant,' vows to seek revenge

But he added in a White House statement that "states that sponsor terrorism risk falling victim to the evil they promote".

Iran's intelligence ministry published pictures of five terrorists involved in the Tehran attacks that took place on June 7.

The attack came as emboldened Sunni Arab states - backed by US President Donald Trump - are hardening their stance against Shiite-ruled Iran. Fars news agency issued a report saying that ISIS claimed responsibility for the terror attacks in Tehran. The attackers targeted two symbolically significant places: the Parliament building and the mausoleum of the Islamic Republic's founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini-not to be confused with the country's current Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Armed assailants, dressed as women, attacked the parliament buildings in the morning.

"UN is beside Iranian nation in fight against terrorism, which needs a collective and worldwide cooperation", he said to Iran's permanent representative to UN.

Zarif was responding to President Trump's statement following the bombings that said, "We grieve and pray for the innocent victims of the terrorist attacks in Iran, and for the Iranian people who are going through such challenging times". Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad-Zarif called it "repugnant" on Twitter and said the Iranian people "reject" the statement. Iran also has been fiercely opposed to the militant group. Iran's Revolutionary Guards accused Saudi Arabia, its regional rival, of supporting the attack.

The killed terrorists, who identified as Saryas, Abu Jahad Qayyum, Ramin and Fereydoun had left Iran to Iraq and Syria after joining ISIS.

Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates cut ties with Qatar this week and has blocked several of the country's media outlets.
