Iran’s Foreign Ministry said a default judgment by a U.S. federal judge finding Iran, in addition to the Taliban and al-Qaeda, liable in the Sept. 11 attacks, is “baseless,” the Islamic Republic News Agency said.

“With the repetition of such claims to back its political aims the U.S. is putting the peace and security of the world in jeopardy,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said, the official IRNA news agency reported on its website.

The claim that Iran “had a hand in planning the attacks and that one of al-Qaeda’s members was present inside the country is baseless,” Mehmanparast said.

Judge George Daniels in Manhattan on Dec. 22 signed the judgment, which came in a $100 billion lawsuit brought by family members of victims of the attacks, the Associated Press said.
