Iranian, Saudi officials meeting denied

There has been no meeting or phone call between Iran’s Secretary of Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani and Saudi officials in recent days, a source says.

Nournews quoted an informed source of the SNSC secretariat on Wednesday that reports on a meeting or phone call between the SNSC secretary and authorities from Saudi Arabia are unfounded and there is no program for such a connection.

On the few days, some social media activists published reports on a such a summit without providing any source. They claimed that Shamkhani had met with Saudi Arabia’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir in Baghdad, Iraq.

On Friday, Iranian Ambassador to Baghdad Iraj Masjedi said that the talks between Iran and Saudi Arabia are progressing rapidly.
