Iran has rejected the claim that it has begun talks on future cooperation with the United States.
The statement was issued today by the official Iranian news agency IRNA, quoting a foreign ministry source in Tehran.
It followed a CNN report suggesting Tehran and Washington have already launched talks.
“The source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said no dialogue has taken place between the two countries to discuss any such future cooperation, much less an agreement on any cooperation in case Washington decides to launch a military strike on Baghdad,” IRNA reported.
The source told IRNA that he suspected the report was “part of the usual psychological warfare employed by the U.S. to mislead world public opinion and distort the official positions of the Islamic Republic on global issues, such as its aversion to moves that would enhance tensions in the region.”
