TEHRAN: Iran's Foreign Ministry dismissed the recent UN report about Tehran's "involvement" in the missile and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia's oil facilities last year, according to a statement carried by official IRNA news agency.

On Thursday, Western media said that UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has told the UN Security Council in a recent report that the cruise missiles and drones used in attacks on Saudi oil facilities in 2019 were of "Iranian origin."

The Iranian Foreign Ministry said in the statement on Friday that the UN might have prepared the report under the "political pressures" of the United States, Xinhua news agency reported.

"With no doubt, such reports will not help the peace and security of the region," the statement said. (IANS)
