Iran has rejected reports that Tehran and several EU nations have begun negotiations over the Islamic Republic’s role in the Middle East.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi made the remarks early on Sunday, noting that despite the fact that Iran and the EU have been negotiating about various regional subjects for decades, no discussions have been held over Tehran’s regional influence.

“Without a doubt this topic is not a new or odd one, but we reject these claims concerning an agreement for talks based on a definite framework,” he said.

Qassemi added that Tehran and several EU nations did hold talks on the sidelines of the recent Munich conference about the situation in Yemen, however he stressed that the talks were focused on the subject of aid delivery and ending Saudi Arabia’s war on it impoverished neighbor.

The Iranian foreign ministry spokesman made the remarks after several western diplomats claimed that Europe and Iran have commenced talks on Tehran’s role in the Middle East.
