Iran denies hand in attack on Israel diplomat’s wife

Iran today refuted that it had a hand in the alleged attack on Israeli diplomat’s wife a few months ago and said being an ancient civilisation it would follow its own ethics and not indulge in such activities.

Reacting to the allegations of Israel that Iran was behind the attack, visiting Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Salehi said it was Israel which had claimed that they would introduce computer virus in Iranian industry.

International community should view the allegations in a detached and dispassionate manner, he said.

Referring to the killing a young Iranian scientist, he said people suspected Israel’s hand and that country had not refuted the allegations.

He said Iran was a 3000-year-old civilisation having its own ethics and its own code of governance.
