Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said Tuesday that his country would react seriously to any attempt by the western countries which refrain from supplying fuel to Iranian passengers jets.

Iran would take measures against any firm or any country which is involved in such a move under the pretext of unilateral sanctions, Mehmanparast said in his weekly press briefing.

On Switzerland's decision to refrain from supplying fuel for Iran's passengers jets, he said, as Iran has announced earlier, such policies by any country are against international law.

The Federal Office of Civil Aviation of Switzerland said Friday the planes of Iran Air would not be allowed to refuel at the Geneva airport.

Iran is under the expansive sanctions by the United Nations Security Council and the Western countries over its controversial nuclear program.
