The Iranian Foreign Ministry on Tuesday denied a UN panel report stating that North Korea and Iran "appear to have been regularly exchanging ballistic missiles, components and technology in violation of UN sanctions," AP reported.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast claimed that Iran's missile capabilities are so advanced that it doesn't need help from anyone, and blasted the report's findings as "news fabrications."

"It's wrong. We think that such reports are published with certain intentions," he was quoted as saying by AP. "Iran's (missile) technology and capability are advanced enough that we don't need other countries to provide us technology or components."
