Foreign Ministry spokesman here Sunday referred to allegation made by General David Petraeus as baseless.
Talking to reporters, Mohammad-Ali Hosseini said that the remarks by the US military commander in Iraq were nothing new and that they were in continuation of the past baseless accusations against the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Petraeus said on Saturday that the arrested Iranian diplomats were members of the Revolutionary Guards Qods force.
"They repeatedly link those arrested or killed in the bombardments with the Qods force. If they can, they announce names of those people or hand over the names to the Islamic Republic of Iran," Hosseini added.
