Report will not solve US problems in Iraq, says Tehran
Tehran on Wednesday said that the latest report on the situation in Iraq would not solve the United States' problems in that country.

Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Mohammad-Ali Hosseini told states news agency IRNA that the report could neither save the US from the "swamp" in Iraq nor secure peace in the Persian Gulf region.

Hosseini was referring to the report by General David Petraeus, commander of US forces in Iraq, and US Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker testified to the US Congress on Monday.

"The report is further based on repetitious and baseless allegations against Iran in line with the efforts by the (George W) Bush administration to blame others for parts of their problems," the spokesman said.
