Iran: US claims of weapons smuggling are 'ridiculous lies'

US claims that Tehran smuggled weapons to Iraq and Afghanistan are “ridiculous lies," Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said Saturday, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.
"The repeated lies and ridiculous claims made by the (former) US defense minister are meant to justify the wrong policies and measures taken when he was in office," Vahidi was quoted as saying.
Vahidi was responding to reports that US senior officials accused the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Iran's elite military unit, of sending military weapons to its allies in Iraq and Afghanistan.
