Iran Rebuffs U.S. Cyber-Attack Charges for Lack of Evidence

  • Ministry spokesman says cyber actions not on Iran's agenda
  • U.S. said hackers were working for Revolutionary Guard Corps

Iran brushed aside cyber-attack charges brought against seven of its citizens by U.S. prosecutors, accusing Washington of putting millions of Iranians in danger with its own attacks on Iran’s nuclear program.

Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman, Hossein Jaberi Ansari, told reporters that the U.S. “is not in any position to charge citizens of other countries, not least Iran’s, without providing any documentary evidence,” according to the semi-official Iranian Students’ News Agency on Saturday.
