Riyadh, Jun.14 (ANI): Saudi Arabia has rejected media reports that it will allow Israel to use its air space to pound Iranian nuclear facilities.

According to a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Riyadh has never permitted Israel to use its airspace to launch air strikes against Iran.

"Saudi Arabia has noticed some false claims in some sections of the British media that it has permitted Israel to launch attacks on Iran using its airspace," The Daily Times quoted the statement, as saying.

The statement further added that the Saudi Kingdom has a clear strategy of not allowing any country to use either its airspace or its soil against any other nation.

It may be noted that a British website had reported that following the UN Security Council's imposition of new sanctions on Tehran, Saudi Arabia had agreed to allow Israel to use a narrow corridor of its airspace to shorten the distance for any bombing.

"The Saudis have given their permission for the Israelis to pass over and they will look the other way," Timesonline had quoted a US defence source, as saying. (ANI)
