Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said on Wednesday that Tehran had not received a written invitation for its foreign minister to visit Saudi Arabia, but it was on Iran's agenda, state news agency IRNA reported. Sunni Muslim Saudi Arabia is a leading backer of rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who is a close ally of the kingdom's main rival, Shi'ite Muslim power Iran. IRNA cited Abdollahian as saying, "A written invitation has not been received, but a visit between the foreign ministers of the two countries is on the Islamic Republic of Iran's agenda."
