Iran rejected as "wrong" some British media reports linking a 400 million pound ($528 million) debt Britain owed to Iran and the fate of a jailed Iranian-British aid worker, state TV reported on Thursday.

"These are two separate matters ... Linking them is wrong. Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe has been tried and sentenced to jail," TV quoted Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi as saying.
