ANKARA - Turkey cast doubt on Friday over allegations that Iranian agents plotted to kill the Saudi ambassador in Washington, saying it did not believe Iran would be engaged in such an act.

"We don't believe that Iran would be engaged in such an act, but America says they have evidence," Ahmet Davutoglu, Turkey's foreign minister, told a joint news conference with his visiting Iranian counterpart Ali Akbar Salehi.

"Governments should be transparent on such issues. Those who make the claims should also be clear about their claims, and Iran should answer to that," Davutoglu said.
