Baghdad, Sept 1, IRNA - Spokesman for the Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs dismissed the fake news by a Western media about dispatch of ballistic missiles by Iran for some Iraqi groups, and expressed surprise about such claims.

Ahmad Mahjub said in a statement on Sunday that the Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs is surprised by the media claims regarding some Iraqi armed groups' receiving Iranian ballistic missile.

Referring to the fact that the Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs is not obliged to respond to any claim by some media reports, he also emphasized that all Iraqi organizations and institutions are bound and committed to the implementation of the article seven of the constitution of the country.
