Iran has denied what it called the baseless accusations that it participated in attacks against US forces.
Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the UN Amir Saeed Iravani asserted that Iran has never carried out any action or attack against the US military forces in Syria or other places.
Addressing the Security Council meeting regarding the situation in the Middle East on Wednesday, Iravani said "the baseless accusations of the US against my country will be categorically rejected in this meeting."
"These baseless accusations appear to be part of a deliberate attempt by the United States to divert attention from the serious violations of international law and the UN Charter in Syria," he said, according to the Iranian Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).
The diplomat said: "I would like to emphasize that the Islamic Republic of Iran has never been involved in any acts or attacks against US military forces in Syria or elsewhere."
He added that Iran has consistently upheld its commitments to promoting peace and security in the region.
Iravani stated the US must stop its "unlawful actions in Syria, end its illegal occupation, and comply with its international legal obligations, including the pertinent resolutions of the Security Council, which require all Member States to uphold and respect Syria's national sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity."
He said Washington "claims to be fighting terrorism in Syria; in reality, its unlawful actions in Syria provide immunity and a protective shield for terrorist organizations to advance the US political agenda and the Israeli regime in the region."
