Britain, Germany, and the United Arab Emirates denied reports Monday that their airports were refusing fuel to Iranian planes, according to AFP.

A secretary of the Iranian Airlines Union told the ISNA news agency earlier that "since last week, after the passing of the unilateral law by America and the sanctions against Iran, airports in England, Germany, the UAE have refused to give fuel to Iranian planes."

All three countries denied the report. In London, a British government spokesman said: "At present Her Majesty's Government is not aware of any occasions when fuel has been refused in the UK."
