Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki on Tuesday accused the United States of abducting its nuclear scientist Shahram Amiri who went missing in Saudi Arabia earlier this year.

"Based on existing pieces of evidence that we have at our disposal the Americans had a role in Mr Amiri's abduction," Mottaki said at a press conference in Farsi which was translated into English by Press TV channel.

"The Americans did abduct him. Therefore we expect the American government to return him."
