TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - In comments on Saturday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi rejected the recent comments by Adel al-Jubeir at the UN General Assembly, where the Saudi diplomat rehashed baseless allegations against Iran.
"Incontrovertibly, Saudi Arabia is the most notorious supporter of terrorism in the world, and the terrorism that has engulfed the whole world, especially the Middle East, today is rooted in Saudi Arabia and the extremist ideologies promoted and sponsoredby this regime," the spokesperson said.
"Adel al-Jubeir proudly announces his country’s support for (US President Donald) Trump's strategy of countering multilateralism and ruining international agreements and contracts, and this is not strange because his country (Saudi Arabia) is among the key supporters of the camp affiliated with Trump's thoughts in the United States,” he added.
He said the camp, in cahoots with the Zionist regimes lobby groups and the United Arab Emirates and by spending millions, or maybe billions of dollars, try to steer the US foreign policy in the path they desire, namely warmongering and provoking instability.
Qassemi then lashed out at Saudi Arabia for leading a military coalition against Yemen that has created an unprecedented catastrophe for five years.
"That the foreign minister of an aggressor country, which is to blame for the destruction of Yemen and the heinous human catastrophe there, hijacks the forum of the UN, whose charter is based on international peace and security, and that he fuels the flames of extremism, animosity, violence and warmongering, are rooted in the ideology based on which he and the House of Salman have been reared," Qassemi concluded.
