Saudi FM: Riyadh ready to confront Iran over 'aggression on Kingdom' - YouTube


Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister says the kingdom is ready to confront Iran if it does not give up its 'continued aggression on the kingdom'.

Adel al-Jubeir said Riyadh is prepared to use all its political, economic and military powers against Iran. Jubeir also accused Iran of being a colonizing state that meddles in the affairs of Saudi Arabia’s neighbors. He said Iran should change the policies he claimed make positive mutual relations difficult. He made the comments in a joint press conference with his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier in Riyadh. Saudi Arabia itself has been widely accused of destabilizing the Middle East by supporting terrorists in Syria, Yemen and Iraq, among others. On Saturday, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif slammed Saudi Arabia for trying to eliminate Iran from the region, adding that Iran is not after eliminating Saudi Arabia.
