DUBAI - Iran denied on Friday that it had forces in Syria supporting President Bashar Assad, one day after foreign backers of his rebel foes demanded Tehran withdraw its fighters from Syrian territory.

"The true enemies of Syria make up these accusations to provoke the people of this country," Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Araqchi said, quoted by Iranian state television.
