Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif: no information about losing drone

UNITED NATIONS, July 18 (Reuters) - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said he was not aware of any downing of an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz on Thursday, after President Donald Trump said a U.S. Navy ship had "destroyed" one.

"We have no information about losing a drone today," Zarif told reporters at the United Nations before a meeting with Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. (Reporting by Michele Nichols; editing by Jonathan Oatis)
