Iran's President Ebrahim Raisi said in a television interview that U.S.-sponsored efforts to normalize Israeli relations with Gulf Arab states, including Saudi Arabia, will see no success.
Raisi, who spoke with CNN on the condition of anonymity, said Iran did not want nuclear inspectors from the United Nations' nuclear watchdog in the country.
Iran has no issue with the U.N. nuclear watchdog's inspection of its nuclear sites, days after Tehran banned multiple inspectors assigned to the country.
Israel has moved closer to the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco, following a U.S.-led diplomatic initiative in 2020 which aimed for normalization of relations.
Establishing ties with Saudi Arabia - home to some of Islam's holiest sites - would be the grand prize for Israel and change the geopolitics of the Middle East.
The president said he does not wish any inspectors to be here.
