    Iran denies U.S. allegations against banks

    Iran has rejected allegations by France, Britain and the US that the country's banking system is trying to bypass UN sanctions against it.

    In a letter to the UN Security Council this month, the US, Britain and France accused certain Iranian banks and their branches, of trying to get around sanctions by covertly conducting transactions. The letter alleged that Iranian banks "continued attempts to conduct prohibited proliferation-related activity and terrorist financing."

    Iran's Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations Mehdi Danesh Yazdi, in a letter to the Security Council on Friday, denied the allegations as 'unfounded and ridiculous.'

    "Iranian banks have never been involved in non-peaceful nuclear activities because there are no such activities in the country,'' the letter said.

    It added that efforts made by the three countries against Iranian banks were aimed at exerting additional pressure on the Iranian government and disrupting banking and financial affairs.

    Under US pressure, the UN Security Council has imposed three sets of sanctions against Iran.

    The West accuses Iran of trying to develop nuclear arms. Tehran, however, argues its enrichment activities are aimed at electricity generation and further peaceful applications of nuclear technology.

    Danesh Yazdi said that Iran preserves the right of demanding compensation for any damage which might be inflicted on its banks or their customers.

    The UN Security Council passed the latest sanctions against Iran in March, calling upon all states to exercise vigilance concerning the activities of financial institutions in their territories with all Iranian banks, in particular Bank Melli, the largest state-owned bank, and Bank Saderat.

    The Iranian diplomat said the accusations made by the US, Britain and France on support of Iranian banks for terrorism was a 'dramatic contradiction.'

    He added that the three countries made such unfounded allegations against other countries while they have a worrisome history of financing and supporting terrorist groups.
