Not involved in failed Iranian satellite launch: Donald Trump”

President Trump denied any US involvement in an apparent launch pad explosion of an Iranian rocket on Friday, tweeting an image that appeared to be sensitive in nature and that sparked confusion.

Trump tweeted what seems to be an image of the site of the failed satellite launch by Iran."The United States of America was not involved in the catastrophic accident during final launch preparations for the Safir SLV Launch at Semnan Launch Site One in Iran".

Plans to conduct three space launches were announced by the Iranian Defence Ministry earlier this year.

Speaking to reporters at the White House later on Friday, Trump defended his posting of the photo and reiterated that the United States had nothing to do with the incident. "I released it, which I have the absolute right to do", Trump said.

Among other reasons, Trump faulted the worldwide agreement for not limiting Iran's missile development.

Other satellite images released Thursday appeared to show the smoldering remains of a rocket at the Imam Khomeini Space Center that was to conduct a USA -criticized satellite launch.

A U.S. official said explosion likely occurred during fueling operations.

Iran argues its atomic program is to develop nuclear power capabilities, but the United States, its ally Israel and Iran's other rivals in the region say that this is a cover for a weapons push.

Tehran denies the USA accusation that such activity is a cover for ballistic missile development. Trump withdrew the United States from the pact in May a year ago.
