Iran says will take drone incident to UN to show US 'lying'

AFP  |  Tehran 

Iran said Thursday it would go to the UN to prove that a US spy drone it shot down had entered Iranian airspace, contrary to Washington's claims.

"We'll take this new aggression to #UN & show that the US is lying about international waters," Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted, after a US general said the drone was taken down some 34 kilometres (21 miles) from the Iranian coast.

"We don't seek war, but will zealously defend our skies, land & waters," Zarif said.
