Iran lawmaker: Fighters in UAE are US-Israeli plot
Iran lawmaker: Stealth fighter deployment to UAE is US-Israeli plot to create instability
By The Associated Press

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) ' A prominent Iranian lawmaker says the reported basing of America's most sophisticated stealth jet fighters in the United Arab Emirates is a U.S.-Israel plot to create regional instability.

Kazem Jalali was reacting to media reports of the recent deployment of F-22 Raptors at the UAE's Al Dafra Air Base, which has long hosted U.S. warplanes.

The deployment was first reported in the journal Aviation Week, but U.S. and UAE officials have not publicly commented.

Jalali was quoted by the semiofficial ISNA news agency Sunday.

Tehran and Washington are at odds over Iran's nuclear program. The U.S. and Israel say Iran is seeking nuclear weapons, a charge Tehran denies. The two countries have not ruled out military action against Iranian facilities.
