Iran denies holding secret meeting with US

The Iranian foreign ministry has denied as "unfounded" claims that Iranian and American officials have met in the Omani capital Muscat as part of negotiations between the two countries.

"All the country's institutions are committed to the instructions of Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, especially in terms of how to deal with the United States, and it is not possible to take a step forward or backward in this regard outside the framework," the foreign ministry said in a statement.

The ministry was responding to conservative member of the Iranian parliament, MP Karimi Ghoddousi, in which he said that Iranian and US diplomats met in Muscat to communicate with the administration of US President Donald Trump.

Ghoddousi told local media on Saturday that his allegations are based on strong evidence.
