A report that North Korea and Iran may have exchanged ballistic-missile technology in violation of United Nations sanctions is fabricated, Iran Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said

Reuters said three days ago that the technology transfers were made through an unidentified country, citing a confidential UN report. Unidentified diplomats named China as the country, the news service said.

“This is propaganda and we believe that certain goals are pursued by spreading such news,” Mehmanparast said in comments aired live on television today. He added that Iran doesn’t need know-how or parts from other countries.

Iran has long rejected allegations by the U.S. and its allies that its nuclear activities are a cover for the development of atomic weapons. Iran’s government says its nuclear program is for civilian applications and aimed at securing energy for its growing population.
