TEHRAN — The Iranian government wrote a letter to Washington seeking an apology for allegations that Iran backed a plot to assassinate Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the U.S. on American soil, a spokesman said Tuesday.

“A letter has been sent … It is our right to seek the official apology of the Americans in protest of this made-up scenario, as these allegations are not true at all,” foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said at a news conference, quoted by the IRNA news agency.
