TEHRAN, Aug. 02 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi has dismissed reports and speculations regarding the unexpected visit of a European Union official to Iran.

"The report is totally false and Mr. Andrus Ansip, the European Commissioner for Digital Single Market, has not had any visit to Iran, either in personal capacity or as an EU official," Ghasemi noted in a statement on Wednesday.

The statement came after media reports claimed Ansip had arrived in Tehran on Thursday (July 27), without receiving the official welcome or having his arrival covered by media.
