Tehran, April 28, IRNA
Iran on Monday dismissed as "illusive allegations" made by certain Iraqi and US officials over arms supply to Iraqi insurgents.
Foreign Ministry Spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini said such irresponsible allegations run counter to good neighboring ties between Iran and Iraq and Tehran strongly refutes them.
Lambasting such undocumented and fabricated allegations which are to create negative impacts are to serve the policies of the occupying forces.
Such allegations which are against Iran's strategy are among scenarios masterminded by US army commanders who try to put the blames on others and they should understand that such ill-behaviors would not meet the interests of Iraqi people and its government who seeks restoration of peace and stability in their country, he said.
Iran is determined to help restore Iraq's security, he said adding that shared borders with Iraq are among Iran's safest borders which proves Iran's constructive will in expansion of relations with Iraq.
Expansion of relations and cooperation between Tehran and Baghdad proves Iran's good-will to this end, Hosseini said.
