Tehran: A source at the Iranian Foreign Ministry has denied the veracity of the statements concerning the UAE's islands of Greater and Lesser Tunb and Abu Musa attributed to its spokesman, Ramin Mehmanparast, which were published yesterday on a website affiliated to the Islamic Consultative Assembly of Iran, noting that the Ministry has the legal right to take action against the body responsible for the misinterpretation of those statements.
He explained that the misinterpretation of the spokesman's remarks had been unprofessional, adding that "The selection of the title (of the published story) and subject in this inappropriate way and the distortion of the statements made by the spokesman, whether intentionally or unintentionally, raise doubts about the intentions behind this." The denial was posted on all Iranian websites including the websites of the official News Agency of Iran, IRNA, and official Farsi language Iranian radio and television. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
