December 09, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Iran has sent a formal protest note to Washington for allegedly spying on its nuclear activities. The note was handed over to the Swiss Embassy in Tehran, which looks after U.S. interests in Iran in the absence of diplomatic relations between Tehran and Washington, the state IRNA news agency said.

"The day the [National Intelligence Estimate] report was issued, the Foreign Ministry submitted a formal note of protest to the Swiss Embassy and demanded an explanation over espionage activities," Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki was quoted as saying.
