Iran dismissed western allegations of chemical attacks by the Syrian government on a rebel-held town in the war-torn Arab country as unfounded and part of a plot to push for military action.
"Such claims and accusations by the Americans and some other western countries signal a new conspiracy against the Syrian government and nation and are an excuse for military action that could further complicate the situation in that country and the region," the Foreign Ministry spokesperson said on Sunday.
IRNA quoted Bahram Qasemi as warning that the western charges  risk another setback to global and regional peace and stability by emboldening terrorist groups operating in the insurgency-riven country.
He said Iran, as a major victim of chemical weapons, condemns the use of any type of chemical weapons by any group or country.
