Iran: Denies Microsoft claims it targets Trump and Biden!

A breath before this year's presidential elections USA, Microsoft announced that hackers from Russia, China and Iran are targeting the election campaign campaigns of Trump and Biden. However, Tehran gave its own answer on Friday, reacting to Microsoft's allegations and stating that it is not interested in the result of the November 3 elections. In particular, Microsoft claimed to have prevented cyber attacks Russian, Chinese and Iranian hackers targeting staff working in the campaigns of the American President and his Democratic opponent. However, the two rival camps in this year's election said they knew they were being targeted by hackers.


The state news agency IRNA said that according to the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iran, Saeed Khatibzadeh, the US, which for decades has been intervening in elections other countries, such as Iran, are not in a position to make such absurd and baseless allegations. He cited the role of the US Central Intelligence Agency in a 1953 coup that ousted popular Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh, who had called for the nationalization of Iranian oil.

Microsoft reported that a hacking group based in Iran called Phosphorus targets personal accounts people associated with the Trump campaign. On the other hand, Khatibzadeh stressed that for Tehran, it does not matter who is in the White House. What matters is Washington's commitment to international law, laws and regulations, non-interference in the affairs of others and compliance with commitments.


The long-running controversy Washington and Tehran has intensified even more since 2018, when Trump decided the US to withdraw from a multinational agreement that reduced the nuclear program of Iran. In addition, Trump has re-imposed sanctions on Iran's economy. Hostile relations between the two countries escalated significantly after a US air strike attack near Baghdad airport in January, in which top Iranian general Saeed Khatibzadeh was killed.

In addition, Iranian officials have repeatedly stated that they do not support Trump or Biden in the 2020 elections, while calling for Washington to return to the 2015 nuclear deal and lift sanctions.
