The Iranian Spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Bahram Ghasemi, strongly reacted to the words of the Foreign Ministry of Saudi Arabia, Adel al-Jubeir. In a meeting with his French counterpart, Al-Jubeir said that Riyadh tried to establish good ties with Tehran, but Iran reacted with hostility. In that occasion, he also praised Trump’s will to contain Iran and attacked Tehran’s interference in areas like Bahrain and Yemen.
Responding to al-Jubeir, Bahram Ghasemi said that Saudi Arabia is only searching to justify its crimes in Yemen and that nothing can change the fact that Riyadh is the first source of terrorism and extremism. Ghasemi added that Saudi Arabia was only capable to spread hate and to promote an ideology which was the excuse for the killing of innocent people every day.
