In the press conference in Italy, Iran President Rouhani attacked Saudi Arabia: “We will not apologize”

Source: Al Alam, Egypt News,

Speaking during his last press conference in Italy – before the next visit in France – the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani attacked Saudi Arabia. Even if Rouhani has repeated that Tehran wants friendly relations with Riyadh, he condemned the execution of Sheikh al Nimr, and the “Saudi aggression against Yemen”. Rouhani also denounced that Saudi Arabia has failed to achieve its goals in Iraq, Lebanon and Syria. The Iranian President underlined that the Saudis’s actions are “helping the terrorists” (meaning Isis). Because of this, even if Riyadh apologizes with the Muslims, it will be insufficient.

In the end of his speech, Rouhani also remembered the last incident during the Hajj (the holy pilgrim to Mecca), accusing Saudi Arabia of “incompetence“. Speaking about the attack against the embassy of Saudi Arabia in Iran, Rouhani remarked that the Iranian security forces have done all they had to do and there is no reason to apologize (on Tuesday, visiting France, the former chief of Saudi Intelligence, Turki al-Faisal, asked Iran to apologize for what happened in Tehran).
