Iran accuses Clinton of spreading 'lies'

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Iran's supreme leader accused U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday of spreading "lies" against Iran during her tour of Arab states in the Persian Gulf.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei claimed that the U.S. seeks to frighten Arab states with the specter of Iran in order to sell them expensive weapons systems.

"Now, the Americans, once again, have dispatched their agent as a saleswoman to the Persian Gulf to spread lies," state TV quoted Khamenei as saying.

Khamenei didn't mention Clinton by name but he was referring to her tour of the region.

Clinton told an audience at a Saudi women's college in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia on Tuesday that it is the responsibility of Iran's neighbors to ensure it does not get nuclear weapons.

She also warned that Iran was sliding into a military dictatorship.
