He added: "In April 1988, the US invaded oil platforms of Resalat, Reshadat, Salamn and Nasr that were located in the Strait of Hormoz that was followed with Iran's juridical measures against this trespass.
Nikrahi continued: "Attack on the Airbus plane of Iran full of passengers in July 1988 was another inhumane act against Iran where the US revealed its direct role in Iraq's imposed war on Iran."
