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

[The documents] have no legal value and will not have the political effect they seek," the Iranian chief executive added at the press briefing in Tehran.
More than 250,000 classified State Department reports made public on Sunday reveal that China was urged to stop shipments through Beijing of missiles from North Korea to Iran, and that Saudi Arabia's monarch urged the United States to attack Iran's nuclear facilities.
