Tehran condemns the statements made by the United States and other countries that the Ukraine International Airlines plane was allegedly downed by an Iranian missile, Iranian government spokesperson Ali Rabiei was quoted by Press TV as saying, reports TASS.

"It is unfortunate but the psychological manipulations by the US government and those who consciously or unconsciously supports them, only adds more grief for the people who lost their loved ones," Rabiei said. He added that by promoting their own explanation of the events, the US is pursuing its own goals.
