 Iranian nuclear negotiator cleared of spying charges - media

Iran’s intelligence minister says that a British-Iranian member of its nuclear negotiating team has been cleared of spying allegations, Tasnim News Agency reports.

Abdolrasoul Dorri Esfahani, part of the team that secured a nuclear accord with world powers last year, was arrested in August and described by a judiciary spokesman as an "infiltrating spy".

But in a written note to parliament, Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi said the case had been dropped, the official IRNA news agency reported.

"According to the views of the intelligence ministry's experts, Mr Dorri Esfahani was not engaged in spying," the note said, according to deputy speaker Masoud Pezeshkian.

Esfahani's role in the nuclear negotiations has not been clarified.
