Iran today rejected comments by British Prime Minister David Cameron that Iran was supplying the Syrian government with weapons to crack down on its opposition.
“Iran categorically denies any military interference in Syria and any comments regarding Iran supplying the Syrian government with weapons are totally baseless,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said [IRNA, 25 February].
“We condemn any violent acts in Syria and our stance has always been support of any reforms which would benefit the people. But at the same time we have always been against any foreign interference in that country,” Mehmanparast said.
Iran has supported Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government since the outbreak of unrest last year.
