Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparats has dismissed the baseless claim of Kuwaiti newspaper of Al-Qabas regarding the dismantling of an alleged spy cell working for Iran in this Arab country.

In an interview with Al-Alam, Mehmanparast said that making such baseless allegations is aimed at creating psychological war and expanding Iranophobia in the region to sow sedition among the regional nations.
He said these fabricated claims are also going to be used as a cover up for Israeli regime's war crimes in the region which are considered as a main threat to the regional stability and peace.
He also called on regional states to keep their vigilance on such political propaganda and preserve their unity.
Al-Qabas daily said on Saturday that security agencies in Kuwait have busted a spy cell working for Iran, feeding information on Kuwaiti and U.S. targets.
Citing high-ranking security sources, the daily added Kuwait has arrested at least seven men in this regard.
