Iran summoned the Swiss ambassador on Tuesday to condemn what it called an "irresponsible" claim by the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. that Tehran supplied a missile fired at Saudi Arabia from Yemen on Nov. 4, Iran's Tasnim news agency reported.

(tasnim/reuters) -- The Swiss embassy represents U.S. interests in Tehran.

"Iran's strong protest at (Nikki) Haley's baseless and provocative claim was conveyed to the Swiss ambassador," Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi was quoted as saying by Tasnim.
