Following the Iranian president's doubts on the 9/11 event, a top military adviser to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution says the CIA and Mossad were involved in the attacks.
"The US and the Zionists developed the strategy of the September 11 attacks in an effort to counter the Islamic vigilance and to control energy resources in the Middle East," IRNA quoted Brigadier General Yahya Rahim-Safavi as saying on Saturday.
He further added that al-Qaeda and its leader Osama bin Laden did not possess the essential intelligence capacity anywhere near the level of CIA, Pentagon and the FBI in order to conduct the surprise attacks against sensitive centers in the United States on September 11.
According to General Rahim-Safavi, heads of Israel's Mossad and the US played roles in the event.
"The September 11 attacks in the US and the shameful act of Qur'an burning by the US and Zionist regime (Israel) were in line with Islamophobia efforts by enemies of Islam who have fears over the spread of Islam and the Islamic vigilance," he further explained.
The Iranian commander also pointed out that the US and certain Western countries invaded Iraq and Afghanistan, a move that proved security is not sustainable in the world.
Nearly 200 Iranian lawmakers have expressed support for President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's remarks at the UN General Assembly last week.
In a statement released on Sunday, 195 lawmakers said Ahmadinejad's remarks brought joy to the Muslim and freedom-seeking nations of the world.
On Thursday, Ahmadinejad proposed that an independent UN committee investigate the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington over what he called "suspicious" circumstances surrounding the attacks.
Two Iranian lawmakers shared their views on the controversial call with Press TV.
"President Ahmadinejad's revolutionary standings are naturally not pleasant for countries like the United States and Britain, and therefore they are worried," head of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said Sunday.
"Ahmadinejad referred to an issue which has been a big question mark in the minds of Americans. Naturally the United States is not happy about Ahmadinejad's speech, because there are many ambiguities surrounding the 9/11 incident, especially over its connection with the Zionist Regime [of Israel]."
