Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast has criticized Iraq for inspecting an Iranian plane taking humanitarian aid to Syria, Press TV reported.
Mehmanparast made the remarks on Tuesday, saying that the move is a violation of international law.
However, he noted that the inspection of Iranian planes has disproved the claim that Iran is sending arms to Syria.
Mehmanparast said Iran will continue relief operations in Syria despite the inspections.
Since mid-March 2011, Syria has been experiencing a deadly unrest, which has killed many people including large numbers of security personnel.
