Iran rejects US claim of arms aid to Afghan militants

Iran has rejected accusations by the top US military commander that it is providing weapons to the militants in Afghanistan.

The US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen claimed in a Kabul news conference that Iran has shipped arms to Taliban militants in Kandahar.

In a statement released on Monday, the Iranian Embassy in Kabul rejected the charges as “recurring allegations” and a sort of “fabrication” by the US in order to justify its defeat in Afghanistan.
