Iran denies nuclear meeting with Israel
Tehran: Tehran on Thursday denied that officials from Israel and Iran recently took part in a conference in Cairo on nuclear non-proliferation in the Middle East.
"The reports in this regard are sheer lies and there has been no meeting in Cairo," the spokesman for the Iranian Atomic Organisation told the website of state television.
According to the Israeli daily Ha`aretz, the September conference organised by the International Commission on Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament (ICNND), took place behind closed doors, with participants committed to secrecy.
The daily said there were exchanges between the Israeli representative, Meirav Zafary-Odiz, and Iranian Ali Asghar Soltanieh, but these took place only within three panel sessions.
"The Ha`aretz report is a psychological operation to undermine the successful (nuclear) meetings in Geneva (October 1) and Vienna (October 19-21)," said Ali Shirzadian.
The spokesman added that Iran did not acknowledge the Israeli state and considered it responsible for insecurity in the Middle East and for the massacre of women and children in Palestine.
