ARBIL, Iraq (Reuters) – Vice President Joe Biden said on Thursday he had no indication the attack on the British embassy in Tehran was orchestrated by Iranian authorities, but it was another example of why the country was a “pariah.”
Biden, wrapping up a three-day visit to mark the end of the American war in Iraq, played down the risk of Iran exploiting the departure of U.S. troops by the end of the year.
He also said the threat of instability in Syria spilling across its borders was not grounds for President Bashar al-Assad to stay in power.
