"We underscore that states that sponsor terrorism risk falling victim to the evil they promote".

Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Thursday slammed U.S. president Donald Trump's remarks on the Tehran terror attacks that killed 13 people. "The fact ISIS claimed responsibility proves that they [Saudi Arabia] were involved in the brutal attack".

"Our country always follows the course of preserving peace and stability in the region", said the Iranian embassy, noting that yesterday's terror attacks can be described as a reflection of the concern of enemies of peace in the region.

Mohammad Javad Zarif responded on Twitter, saying: "Repugnant White House statement.Iranian people reject such U.S. claims of friendship".

On Wednesday, Iran's parliament and mausoleum of Ayatollah Khomeini in Tehran were hit in near-simultaneous attacks that have killed 17 people and wounded 52 others. As reports said, several armed people tried to break their way into the Parliament building.

The game will be released Worldwide on 22 September, 2017 for the PlayStation 4 system, Xbox One , and PC. Publisher Bandai Namco has also confirmed that the racing simulator will be playable at E3 2017 .

The attack on Tehran was the worst in many years, and the first successful terror attack by Islamic State on Iran, if the group's claims are true.

Iranian forces are backing embattled Syrian president Bashar Assad while the Shiite power is also supporting militias fighting against the extremists in Iraq. Iran is a majority-Shiite nation, and the Islamic State is a Sunni group that often targets Shiite Muslims.

The Revolutionary Guards' accusation comes at a time of heightened Saudi-Iranian tensions following a regional rift with Qatar. Their statement, according to a Financial Times translation and annotation, read: "This terrorist act took place a week after a joint meeting between the U.S. president and head of a reactionary regional country [Saudi Arabia] which has been a constant supporter of terrorism".

Saudi Arabia has denied involvement, Reuters reports.

Two separate attacks shook Tehran on June 7.
