Speaking on the sidelines of a meeting with a delegation from Kuwait on Sunday, he said "One has to ask Americans how they published such news.”
Asked if he intends to travel to Oman, where Iran, the US, and EU hold talks on the former’s nuclear program, as the talks begin, he said "I have neither take any recent trip to Oman, nor intend to take such a one on the occasion.”
No such thing has been mentioned, he asserted.
