TEHRAN, November 10 - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif said that visits to Saudi Arabia would be dangerous for regional health.

Zarif: Visits to Saudi Arabia hazardous to regional healthTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - “Visits to the belligerent #KSA has proved hazardous to regional health. Trump visit led to Bahrain repression followed by Qatar obstacle,” he tweeted.

“Visits by Kushner and Lebanese PM led to Hariri’s bizarre resignation while abroad, of course, Iran is accused of interference.”

“#KSA bombs #Yemen to smithereens, killing 1000’s of innocents including babies, spreads cholera and famine but of course blames Iran.”

“KSA is engaged in wars of aggression, regional bullying, destabilizing behavior & risky provocations. It blames Iran for the consequences.”

Iran has recently said that former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri had resigned in Saudi Arabia due to Saudi pressures.

Last Saturday, Iran vehemently rejected remarks by Hariri, who has stepped down as Lebanon’s Prime Minister, saying his resignation and rehashing of the “unfounded and baseless” allegations regularly leveled by the Zionists, Saudis and the US are another scenario to create new tensions in Lebanon and elsewhere in the Middle East.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi made the remarks a few hours after the announcement of Hariri’s resignation in Saudi Arabia, in which he made allegations against Iran and Lebanon's Resistance Movement Hezbollah, Presstv reported.

“The sudden resignation of Mr. Hariri and its announcement in another country are not only regrettable and astonishing, but also indicative of him playing in a court that the ill-wishers in the region have laid out,” he said.

“The winners in this field are not Arab and Muslim countries but the Zionist regime (Israel) which has defined its existence in tensions ‘in’ and ‘among’ the Muslim countries in the region,” the Iranian spokesperson added.
