EghtesadOnline: Iran's Embassy in Lebanon in a statement on Thursday categorically ruled out 'misleading' allegations and claims of the Chairman of the Lebanese Forces Samir Gaegae.
The 'empty and baseless' claims of Gaegae in an interview with the Lebanese TV (MTV) on Wednesday against Islamic Republic of Iran, including his misquotations of Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif, are categorically rejected, read the statement.
'The claims lack any authenticity and reality, being baseless and unfounded,' the statement said.
Levelling charges has been usual strategy and discipline of Gaegae, the statement read, questioning, 'At present juncture that Lebanon lies in an atmosphere of peace and stability, it is not clear what is his goal and intention in raising such misleading claims?'
Gaegae had in the televised interview claimed that Iran had not been in favor of election of General Michel Aoun as Lebanon's president, according to Reuters.
