TEHRAN, July 4 (Xinhua) -- Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast reiterated Tehran's charges against the United States for abducting an Iranian nuclear scientist by the U.S. Central Intelligent Agency (CIA), the official IRNA news agency reported Sunday.

The spokesman said Saturday that the evidences of kidnapping Shahram Amiri by CIA has been submitted to the Swiss embassy in Tehran which is responsible for issues concerning the United States in Iran in the absence of Washington and Tehran's diplomatic ties, the report said.

"We expect the U.S. government, upon its duty and promise of the State Department spokesman, declare results of their investigations about the Iranian citizen soon," he was quoted as saying.

Iran has accused the Unite States of being behind the disappearance of scientist and researcher of Tehran's Malek Ashtar University Shahram Amiri during his religious pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia in May.

The U.S. officials have dismissed the allegations.
