DUBAI - 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 this was on Iran's agenda, state news agency IRNA reported.

On Tuesday, Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister, Prince Saud al-Faisal, said Riyadh had invited Iran's foreign minister to visit.

Saudi Arabia is a leading backer of rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar Assad, who is a close ally of the kingdom's main rival, Shi'ite Muslim power Iran.
