Iran denies getting missile technology from NKorea

Iran's Foreign Ministry has denied reports that the country has received ballistic missile technology or components from North Korea in violation of U.N. sanctions.
Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said Tuesday that Iran is self-sufficient in missile production and doesn't need any outside technology.
He was reacting to a seven-member U.N. panel report to the Security Council which said prohibited ballistic missile-related items are suspected to have been transferred between North Korea and Iran.
The report, obtained by The Associated Press on Monday, said prohibited ballistic missile-related items are suspected to have been transferred on regularly scheduled flights of Air Koryo and Iran Air, with trans-shipment through a third country that diplomats identified as China.
