Iran denies plotting against Israeli targets in UN letter

February 23, 2012 10:21

Iran referred to as "unfounded allegations and distortions," Israel's accusations that the Islamic Republic was behind a recent spate of terror plots against Israeli interests abroad, while charging the Jewish State with assassinating Iranian nuclear scientists as part of a "war game," AFP reported on Thursday.

The complaints came in a letter sent by Iran's Ambassador to the UN, Mohammad Khazaee, to the UN Security Council.

Tehran "categorically rejects the allegations concerning any involvement of its officials or organs whatsoever in alleged recent terrorist operations against Israeli targets in a number of countries, namely Thailand, India, Georgia or Azerbaijan," Khazaee's letter said.

He added that Iran has "suffered from terrorist acts including assassinations of her nuclear scientists due to the tacit and explicit support extended by the Israeli regime to terrorist groups."
