Iran has announced repeatedly that it does not interfere in the internal affairs of other countries and sees no need for such interference," Abbas Ali Kadkhodaei, the spokesman for Iran's highest legislative body was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency. He added the US presidential election is a domestic issue of the Americans.

The remarks from the Iranian official were a reaction to the recent comments by Director of US National Intelligence John Ratcliffe who alleged that Iran and Russia had obtained voter registration information in an attempt to undermine confidence in the US presidential election.

On Thursday, Iran's Foreign Ministry summoned Switzerland's ambassador to Tehran, who represents US interests in Iran, in protest to the claims of Iran's meddling in the US election.
