TEHRAN, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- Iran on Monday denied that it transfers Russian weapons to Armenia through its land border, official IRNA news agency reported.

In a statement, the Iranian Embassy in Baku dismissed as "unfounded" foreign media reports which alleged that Iran transfers Russian arms to Armenia through Nurduz border crossing in the northwest of the country.

The claims have been made by "hostile and opposition groups" which are antagonistic about close ties between Iran and Azerbaijan, the statement said.

Such media reports are aimed at disturbing cooperation and friendly relations between Tehran and Baku, it added.

Over the past months, the borders of Azerbaijan and Armenia have witnessed deadly clashes between the two countries' security forces. Enditem
