Tehran: Iran’s foreign ministry has denied any involvement in alleged cyber attacks on US financial institutions, the media reported on Saturday.

Iran does not support dangerous cyber acts and has always urged international efforts to counter cyber crimes, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hossein Jaber Ansari said.

Washington in the past targeted Iran’s peaceful nuclear facilities by a cyber attack and put the lives of millions of people at the risk of environmental disaster, Xinhua news agency quoted Ansari as saying.

On Thursday, the White House announced charges against seven hackers linked to the Iranian government, who allegedly infiltrated dozens of US banks as well as a dam outside New York.
