The spokesman for the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has rejected as irony claims by Britain and Israel over quote threats posed by Tehran's nuclear work.

Kanaani added, at a time when the region is witnessing positive developments, it is not strange that the Israeli regime and Britain are angry and dissatisfied with the trend in the region and struggle to weaken and destroy this process.
