Iran: Reports on refueling are 'part of a psychological war'

July 6, 2010 13:56

Reports that Teheran has been denied refueling rights are "part of a psychological war," an Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman was quoted as saying Tuesday.

Reuters reported that Ramin Mehmanparast told a news conference, "This news is not right. No such limitation has been imposed."

The comments came after a Wall Street Journal report on Monday that British oil giant BP refused to refuel Iranian airlines after the US Congress passed a new round of tightened sanctions against Iran last week.
