Iran Dismisses Riyadh’s Espionage Allegations as “Baseless”
Fars NA -(Sun Mar 24, 2013) The Iranian Foreign Ministry categorically denied Riyadh’s claims about Iran’s involvement in alleged spying activities in Saudi Arabia.
In a statement, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast rejected Saudi Arabia’s claims about the presence of an Iranian national in an alleged spy network in the country.
The Iranian spokesman dismissed the allegation as a “baseless and repetitive scenario.”
“Raising such baseless issues at the media levels is merely for domestic consumption,” Mehman-Parast said.
The statement came after the Saudi Interior Ministry said in a statement on March 19 that the country’s authorities have arrested 18 people, including an Iranian and a Lebanese, on charges of espionage for a foreign country.
