The incident involving the two old adversaries happened on Monday, it quoted the armed forces chief as saying.

“A U.S. reconnaissance aircraft which had intended to approach our operational war games left … upon the timely warning of our air defence forces,” Fars quoted armed forces commander Ataollah Salehi as saying.
