DUBAI - A member of Iran's negotiating team at ongoing nuclear talks in Switzerland denied reports that the two sides are closing in a 2- to 3-page preliminary accord, state news agency IRNA reported on Saturday.

Majid Takht-Ravanchi told IRNA there has been no discussion of such an accord, IRNA said.

Reuters reported on Friday that Iran and world powers -- the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China -- were getting close to such a deal, citing senior Iranian and Western officials.

A Western diplomat who confirmed the Reuters story dismissed Ravanchi's remarks as incorrect and aimed at a domestic audience.
