Iranian state television said on Friday reports quoting Iran's president-elect Hassan Rouhani as calling Israel a "wound that ... needs to be removed" were distorted.
"News agencies distort Iran pres-elect Rohani's remarks on Quds Day," said a breaking news caption on Press TV. There were no further details.
Earlier on Friday, Iranian news agencies reported that cleric Rouhani - who will be inaugurated on Sunday - had described the Zionist regime as "a wound that has sat on the body of the Muslim world for years and needs to be removed".Güncelleme Tarihi: 02 Ağustos 2013, 15:02
