Iran's president says leaked American diplomatic cables recounting Arab calls for the US to launch a strike on Iran's nuclear facilities were intended to stir "mischief."

According to the cables released Sunday by online whistle-blower Wikileaks, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia repeatedly urged the United States to attack Iran to destroy its nuclear program to stop Teheran from developing a nuclear weapon.

"We don't give any value to these documents," Ahmadinejad told a news conference "It's without legal value. Iran and regional states are friends. Such acts of mischief have no impact on relations between nations."

Ahmadinejad alleged the leaks were an "organized" effort by the US to stir trouble between Iran and Arab neighbors.
