US President Donald Trump has dismissed Iranian media reports about the capture of CIA spies, calling the story "totally false" and saying there was "zero truth" in the reporting, APA reports citing Sputnik.

“The Report of Iran capturing CIA spies is totally false. Zero truth. Just more lies and propaganda (like their shot down drone) put out by a Religious Regime that is Badly Failing and has no idea what to do. Their Economy is dead, and will get much worse. Iran is a total mess!”, Trump wrote in his Twitter page.

Note that earlier Monday, Iranian media revealed details on a major cyber-espionage ring run by US intelligence, saying that a total of 17 CIA-trained spies had been identified, and publishing photo and video evidence of alleged US attempts to recruit Iranians to work against their government.
