Iran’s claims about Saudi messages are inaccurate says Al-Jubeir

  • Al-Jubeir said Iran needs to stop interfering in the internal issues of Arab states
  • Tensions between the two states rose after the Sep. 14 Aramco attacks

DUBAI: Iranian claims Saudi Arabia sent its government messages is inaccurate, Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel Al-Jubeir has said in a series of tweets.

“What happened was that friendly nations were seeking to calm the situation, and we told them the Kingdom is always seeking peace and stability in the region,” Jubeir said.

Al-Jubeir reiterated the Saudi stance towards Iran, urging the Islamic Republic to stop supporting terrorism and disruption through the interference in internal issues of Arab states, producing weapons of mass destruction and creating ballistic missile programs.

“Act like a normal country, and not like a rouge terrorism-supporting state,” he added.

Tensions between the two states increased after Saudi Arabia blamed Tehran for the Sep. 14 Aramco oil facilities attack, which was claimed by Houthi militia.

Iran denies the charges, although they support the Houthis in Yemen.

“The Kingdom has not and will not discuss Yemen with the Iranian regime,” Al-Jubeir said.

Yemen belongs to Yemenis, and the Iranian interference is the reason behind the war, he added.
