July 30, 2006 18:26

Iran denied Sunday it was helping Hizbullah in its fight against Israel in Lebanon. "We haven't deployed any forces there (Lebanon)," said Hamid Reza Asefi, spokesman of Iran's foreign ministry. "We don't send weapons to the resistance. We don't support them militarily. "If we choose to give them future military support, we will announce it. We have no fear of Mr. Bush and company." Iran is a vocal backer of Hizbullah, which is battling Israel in its southern Lebanese strongholds after its guerrillas captured two Israeli soldiers and killed eight others on July 12.
