TEHRAN, Dec. 03 (Press Shia) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi has rejected the allegations of a serious argument between Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his Saudi counterpart Adel al-Jubeir in Italy.

“This is a completely inaccurate story and a clear build-up with specific intentions,” Ghasemi said on Saturday in reaction to certain foreign media claims.

Ghasemi added that the news is basically false as the two ministers visited the Italian capital of Rome on two different days to address the Mediterranean Dialogue Conference.
