Iran's Foreign Ministry on Sunday joined the country's Parliament in labeling the US Army and Central Intelligence Agency as terrorist organizations in a largely symbolic move. Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini told reporters in his weekly brief that he agreed with the symbolic resolution passed by Iran's hardline parliament Saturday which condemned the two American institutions for its actions in Japan in World War Two, as well as more recently in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq.
