DUBAI - Iran rejected terrorism charges raised against it in an annual US State Department report, Iranian media outlets reported on Sunday, saying the Islamic Republic merely supported nations fighting for freedom.

"The legitimate struggle of nations which are occupied ... are not examples of terrorism, and such charges in the American report are rejected," said Foreign Ministry spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari, quoted by state news agency IRNA.

Ansari in turn condemned "U.S. military interference and destructive support for terrorist groups in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya and Yemen", the agency said.
