Iran has rejected reports by the Daily Telegraph about Tehran's plan to fund a multi-million dollar army base in Syria, saying such moves aim to portray a “fake image” of the region.

“Western media intend to prepare the ground for the interference of different countries in the region with the purpose of causing regional tension,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said at his weekly press conference on Tuesday.

He added that Western media are making great efforts to divert the public opinion's attention from domestic issues, events in European and Western countries, public demands and social dissatisfaction.

The spokesperson urged Western media to pay the most attention to their own domestic issues and to make efforts to resolve their own problems.

On Friday, Britain's Daily Telegraph claimed that Iran will fund a multi-million-dollar army base on Syria's coast to funnel military equipment to the Syrian government.

The report added that the deal would assist with the development of an Iranian military compound at Syria's Latakia airport to be completed by the end of next year. The agreement will open a supply route that will allow Iran to transfer military hardware to Syria.
