Iran denies reports Assad in Tehran
Tehran, August 28, 2013
Iran denied reports on Wednesday that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad had flown to Iran, according to Iran's English-language state broadcaster Press TV.
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Araqchi said the reports were "ridiculous," Press TV said.
Some financial market participants on Wednesday were citing reports in Middle East outlets that Assad had left Syria for Iran.
Meanwhile, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said US intervention in Syria would be "a disaster for the region", the ISNA state news agency reported.
"The intervention of America will be a disaster for the region. The region is like a gunpowder store and the future cannot be predicted," the agency quoted him as saying. - Reuters
