Iran's Foreign Ministry on Monday dismissed the allegations of interfering in the upcoming US presidential election.

"This is one of the ridiculous claims that the Americans have raised recently with respect to the (upcoming) elections in their country," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi said.

What Iran cares about the policies of parties in the United States is their behavior and their interaction with Iran, Mousavi said at his weekly press conference on Monday.

On Wednesday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo alleged that some countries, including Iran, have been interfering in the US elections by engaging in cyber activities.
