Rejecting latest US officials’ requests From Iran, the Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said ironically: “Look whether they have other demands or not!”

On the sidelines of an honoring ceremony held for the Martyrs of Ghadir at the hall of Iran’s Interior Ministry, Salehi called the latest US espionage actions against the Islamic Republic as hostile.
After the operation of seizing the unmanned American stealth RQ-170 Sentinel aircraft by Iran the US President Barack Obama asked the Islamic Republic to give the downed American espionage drone back.
On the other hand, the Iranian Intelligence Ministry announced on Saturday it had arrested Amir Mirzai Hekmati "the Iranian-origin CIA agent" before he could infiltrate the ministry to "feed it deceptive information on a large scale and spy on it," state satellite channel Press TV reported.
Salehi said Tehran is taking legal action based on the defined international laws against the United States for dispatching a spy as well as an espionage drone to Iran which violated Iranian airspace.
He also denied that Iran-UAE trade ties has been severed.
Earlier some media said that the Iranian trade minister had spoken of a suspension of economic exchange with the UAE.
But the Foreign minister said however that Iran's system for registration of orders was recently faced with some malfunction.
According to the reports on Tuesday Iran's Trade Development Organization (ITDO) had refused to register new orders from the neighboring country.
