(Persia Digest) – The Saudi Foreign Minister, Adel Al Jubeir, commented on the US sanctions against Iran, saying: “Saudi Arabia supports international law and any sanctions imposed on Iran, because Iran has violated international law.”
The Saudi Ambassador to the US, Khalid bin Salman, has written in Arab News online demanding to deal with Iranian behavior and expressed support for Donald Trump’s anti-Iran policies.
Khalid bin Salman pointed to Trump’s anti-Iran strategies, writing: “Saudi Arabia is committed to helping America in any way it can.”
Saudi Arabia has decided to take this stance against Iran as the Iranian President, Hassan Rouhani, said yesterday: “Iran is seeking the best relations with its neighbors. Under the new circumstances, it is looking to reform relations with Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain.”
Rouhani had said: “If a neighbor like Saudi Arabia gave up its obstinacies and expressed a desire for relations, we must resolve differences and establish friendships.”
Senior Iranian officials have called for the settlement of disputes with Saudi Arabia through negotiation and dialogue several times now, but Saudi Arabia has not shown an interest.
