FM spokeswoman denies Iran sends planes to Iraq

TEHRAN, July 9 (MNA) –Iran’s FM spokeswoman has said Islamic Republic of Iran has not sent any air strikers to Iraq.

Asked about stories in western media about Iran’s sending of Sukhoi fighter aircraft to Iraq, Marzieh Afkham said that the Islamic Republic of Iran never sent any fighters or military equipment to Iraq.

On recent nuclear negotiations going on in Vienna, Afkahm told reporters that the Islamic Republic of Iran would continue the talks to reach agreement with the 5+1 group before the deal deadline of July 20 or beyond it.

She maintained that negotiations had some, albeit little, progress. “We hope that the other side’s realism bring right decisions to talks,” she added.

Afkham asserted that foreign ministers of P5+1 would also join the negotiations by the end of the week.

She held that Iran was determined to reach to an agreement in this round and start drafting the final nuclear text but not on any price.
