US drone was 'in OUR territorial waters where it was shot down,' says Iranian FM

US Drone, Iranian FM

Tehran : Outrightly dismissing US claims regarding the issue, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif on Thursday said that parts of the downed US drone were retrieved from Iran's territorial waters "where it was shot down." The already volatile US-Iran relationship has further aggravated after the downing of the US military drone by Iran on Thursday.

While Iran has claimed that the "intruding American spy drone" was shot as it was in their airspace, Washington has labelled it as "an unprovoked attack." They claim that the US drone was flying over international waters when it was attacked. "At 00:14 US drone took off from UAE in stealth mode and violated Iranian airspace. It was targeted at 04:05 at the coordinates (25deg59'43"N 57deg02'25"E) near Kouh-e Mobarak," Zarif tweeted.

"We've retrieved sections of the US military drone in OUR territorial waters where it was shot down," he said while completely rejecting the US' statement. ANI
