Iran's foreign ministry on Friday denied allegations that Teheran has provided military support to Hizbullah in its fight against Israel, a day after US President George W. Bush sharply criticized Iran's role in the bloody fighting. "Our support has been spiritual. If we had military support, we would announce it. We are working very open, and we don't have any hidden business," ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi told a talk show on state-run television. Bush said Thursday that Iran is connected to Hizbullah, and now was the "time for the world to confront this danger."
