DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran accused the United States on Monday of selling arms to "dangerous terrorists" in the Middle East and of spreading "Iranophobia".

"America is reinvigorating terrorists in the region by its hostile policies," state television quoted Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi as saying a day after U.S. President Donald Trump signed an arms deal with Tehran's arch-foe Saudi Arabia and singled out Iran as a source of support for militants.

"America should stop selling arms to dangerous terrorists," Qassemi added.
