Iran dismisses Saudi call for inclusion in nuclear talks

(VOVWORLD) - Iran on Monday dismissed a call by Saudi Arabia for Gulf states to be consulted on any potential negotiations with Tehran on its nuclear program.

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh reiterated Iran's stance against renegotiating the nuclear accord signed with the P5+1, and said the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) has already been written.

He dismissed a recent request by Germany — which remains a party to the accord along with Britain, China, France and Russia — for a new, broader deal that would include limits on Tehran's ballistic missile program.

Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan asked on Saturday that the Gulf states be kept informed about whatever goes on with the negotiations with Iran.
