Iran calls S. Arabia 'most well-known sponsor of terrorism'

Tehran, Sept 28, IRNA – Iran's foreign ministry Saturday called Saudi Arabia 'the most well-known sponsor of terrorism' that is the only origin of all terrorism acts targeting the entire world, particularly the Middle East.

Rejecting the anti-Iran claims of Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir at the United Nations General Assembly, Iran's foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said, 'No doubt Saudi Arabia is the most well-known sponsor of terrorism in the world, and the terrorism the entire world, particularly the Middle East, is facing is rooted in nowhere but Saudi Arabia and the extremist thought that is preached, promoted and financed by the regime.'

'It is no surprise that Adel al-Jubeir proudly declareed his country's support for Trump's strategy against multilateralism and spoiling international agreements,' Qasemi said arguing that Riyadh is 'one of the main supporters of the American movement, affiliated to Trump's thought, that is trying, along with the Zionist regime's lobby and the United Arab Emirates, to lead the foreign policy of the US toward its own war-mongering, destabilizing goals by spending millions, or even billions of dollar,'.

Referring to the dire, catastrophic situation in Yemen that has been deteriorated since the military intervention of Saudi Arabia in five years ago, the spokesman said, 'That the foreign minister of an aggressive country, being the main cause of destruction and horrific humanitarian crisis in Yemen, abuses the tribune of the United Nations, the foundation of which is based on international peace and security, to promote extremism, hostility, violence and war-mongering is the result of the thought that Jubeir and other members of Salman family.'

The Saudi foreign minister at the UN said that his country supports the new strategy of the US for confronting Iran and its nuclear and missile programs.

He also accused Tehran of international agreements violation.

His claims run counter to the confirmation reports issued by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Iran's commitment to the nuclear deal it signed with major world powers in 2015.

The US unilaterally withdrew from the deal in May and reimposed the anti-Iran economic sanctions that were supposed to be relieved under the agreement, as well as the UN Resolution.
