A security official at the Tehran prosecutor's office said the daughters of opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi, Zahra and Nargis were not arrested, Fars news agency reported.
The official said the girls were invited to the prosecutor's office for interrogation, and to testify.
Previously, Iranian opposition website Kaleme reported that Mousavi's children were arrested by the security forces, and their whereabouts remain unknown.
The security official said Mousavi's children will be released as soon as the interrogation is over. He added that the girls were asked to come to the prosecutor's office in the first place, because of some articles written in Iran's media.
Two weeks ago, Mousavi's daughters said that they remain unaware of the conditions that their parents are being kept in.
Both Zahra and Nargis have called for the immediate and unconditional release of their parents, the capturing of which they called "kidnapping", claiming they were illegally detained.
Ex-presidential candidates Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi expressed protests against the results of the presidential elections in Iran on June 12, 2009.

According to observers, the protests which began in Iran after the elections have been held at a level having no analogue after the Islamic Revolution of 1979. Hundreds of political activists were arrested and dozens of citizens killed.
Mousavi and his wife Zahra Rahnavard have been placed under home arrest.
