Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's chief of staff Mahmoud Vaezi denied reports asserting that the visit of Oman's foreign minister Yusuf bin Alawi came to mediate between the US and Iran.

He also denied that an Iraqi delegation has been to Tehran to play the role of the mediator. "Iran will listen to the Iraqi delegation, but what matters is what we will decide concerning its suggestions," Vaezi said.

Alawi met on Monday with his Jordanian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif, where they discussed the latest regional developments, according to Vaezi.

Tensions have escalated recently between the US and Iran with increasing concerns about a potential US-Iran war. Earlier, the US pulled some diplomatic staff from its embassy in Baghdad following weekend attacks on four oil tankers in the Gulf, Reuters reported.
