The Saudi Foreign Minister has said that “we condemn the hateful threats and statements made by the Iranian officials against Saudi Arabia and the other countries within the region.”
In a joint press conference with Federica Mogherini – the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy – Adel al-Jubeir stated: “we do not fear the comments made by the Iranian officials. These statements show that Iran is not trying to establish good relations. Rather this is a country that has influence in the region and plans for hostility. al-Jubeir continued to say that the statements made by Iran were probably due to the failures of their allies in Yemen.
Also during the joint press conference, Ms. Mogherini emphasized Iran’s positive role in the region and the world. On July 27th, Mogherini was in talks with Saudi Arabia to explain the nuclear agreement she helped broker as well as try to end the war in Yemen.
