Kingdom not asked to mediate between Iran and the US

Saudi Arabia today denied media reports that the Iranian government had asked it to mediate between Iran and the United States.

“The two sides have enough of negotiations and know each other well, which enables them with goodwill, to find a peaceful solution to any differences that exist,” Minister of Foreign Affairs Prince Saud Al-Faisal said in a joint press conference today with Secretary of State Rice. “We are not undergoing any form of mediation on this issue.”
