Spokesman dismisses rumors on Iran's missiles sent to Iraq

Politics - Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi on Saturday categorically dismissed rumors on shipment of Iran-made missiles to Iraq and called the claim as 'fabricated and nonsense'.

The lie disseminated by some media on shipment of Iran-made missiles to Iraq is totally irrelevant and unfounded, he said.

Such news merely is to cause panic among countries in the region and are in line with their policy to spread Iranophobia, Qasemi said.

They seem to target Iran's foreign relations mainly with its neighbors, he said.

Qasemi's remarks came in reaction to a recent report by Reuters alleging that Iran has given ballistic missiles to some tribal groups in Iraq and is developing the capacity to build more there.
