Tehran: US kidnapping claim against Iran not worth responding

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh refused US government's "baseless" allegations about Tehran’s failed attempt to kidnap a US-based Iranian national, saying it is not worth answering.

"This new claim by the US government whose animosity towards Iran is crystal clear and not unknown to anyone is so baseless and ridiculous that it is not really worth answering," Khatibzadeh said on Wednesday, Mehr News Agency reported.

He made the remarks in reaction to the earlier reports on Tuesday that US prosecutors had charged four Iranians with plotting to kidnap a New York-based Iranian national Masih Alinejad.

"This is not the first time that the United States resorts to such Hollywood-like scenarios, the sole purpose of which is to desperately revitalize its burnt and discredited [intelligence] agents," said the spokesman.
