Iran says it is surprised by Morocco's decision to sever diplomatic links with Iran, saying the move harms unity in the Islamic world. In a statement Saturday, the Foreign Ministry rejected charges by Morocco that Iran was intervening in its internal affairs. Morocco said Friday it was cutting off diplomatic relations with Iran and accused Teheran of trying to spread Shi'ite Islam in the north African Sunni Arab kingdom. The Moroccan press has repeatedly accused the Iranian Embassy of proselytizing in recent years. The Iranian ambassador denied the charges as recently as last week.
