Iran summons UK charge d'affaires
Iran summoned British charge d'affaires to the country following Foreign Secretary William Hague's claim on Tehran's meddling in Syria, ISNA reported.
In a meeting attended by the UK diplomat and the Head of Western European Office of Iranian Foreign Ministry, the Iranian official said allegations raised by Hague came without any evidence.
"The remarks were entirely unfounded and baseless," the Iranian official added.
"The UK government is not qualified to make comments about other countries due to its interventionist acts and destructive role in regional developments particularly training some countries' military for crackdown on people," the Iranian official continued.
The British diplomat said he would inform his country's authorities of Iranian protests.
The British claim reiterated that Iran is helping the Syrian regime in its crackdown on protests.
Senior British Foreign Office sources claimed that there is "credible information" that Tehran is providing paramilitary training to Syrian security forces.
