Asefi rejects Iraqi missile experts` presence in Iran

IRNA

Tehran, Nov 17, IRNA -- Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi 
here Monday refuted news spread by US intelligence officials on 
presence of Iraqi missile experts in Iran as "completely baseless", 
saying this is a kind of taking advantage of current situation in 
Iraq. 
"This way of producing such news stories is the easiest and the 
most superficial way to address existing questions," Asefi told 
IRNA. 
He said that while the long-range missiles of Saddam Hussein 
regime had hit civilian areas in several Iranian cities for years 
with prior consent of the US, the claim that Iraqi missile scientists 
had taken refuge in Iran is illogical and meaningless.
