Saudi Arabia has denied on Monday working with Israel on contingency plans for a potential attack on Iran's nuclear facilities.

The Sunday Times reported that Riyadh has given its consent to Israel to use Saudi airspace for a potential attack on Iran. In addition, the paper quoted a diplomatic source as saying the Saudis were willing to assist an Israeli attack by cooperating on the use of drones, rescue helicopters and tanker planes.

But on Monday, a Saudi foreign ministry spokesman said the kingdom "has no relations or contacts with Israel of any kind or at any level," according to state news agency SPA.
