Saudi Arabia Foreign Affairs minister Faisal bin Farhan Al-Saud reiterated Riyad’s allegations against Iran at a joint news conference with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov during a visit to Moscow.
Accusing Iran of trying to destabilize the Middle East, Faisal bin Farhan claimed that Iran was creating obstacles to resolving the Syrian crisis. He called on Iran to stop doing so.
Observers say Saudi officials have been raising “baseless allegations” against Tehran for some time, in unison with the United States and Israel.
The allegations against Tehran come at a time when Iran is playing a key role in building resistance against joint US-Israeli-Saudi conspiracies and misdeeds in the Middle East.
Besides, the Saudi foreign minister accused Iran of creating instability in the Middle East at a time when Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have been wreaking havoc on Yemen for nearly six years.
More than 16,000 people have been killed so far in the aggression. At the same time, there is a famine in Yemen and a severe food and medicine crisis. One of the main causes of the current instability in the Middle East is the Saudi-led aggression in Yemen.
