UNITED NATIONS - Iran on Wednesday denounced a draft UN General Assembly resolution condemning an alleged plot to kill Saudi Arabia's envoy to the United States and urging Iran to obey the law.

In a letter to assembly President Nassir al-Nasser, Iran's UN ambassador reiterated Tehran's denials of involvement in the affair and said the assembly would lose credibility if it considered what he called unsubstantiated allegations.

Saudi Arabia's UN delegation said on Tuesday it was about to hand the assembly the draft, which would have the body say it "deplores the plot to assassinate the ambassador of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the United States of America."

US authorities said last month they had uncovered a plot by two Iranian men linked to Tehran's security agencies to hire a hit man to kill ambassador Adel al-Jubeir. One man, Manssor Arbabsiar, was arrested in September while the other is believed to be in Iran.
