Iran has started escalating and must stop sponsoring terrorism



Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Adel Al-Jubeir, said on Thursday that it was Iran that started the escalation in the region, stressing: Iran should take care of its people and stop sponsoring terrorism.

He said in a session at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that his country is concerned about Iran’s interference in Iraqi affairs, adding that Saudi Arabia cares deeply about Iraq and “we have brotherly relations.”

Al-Jubeir stressed that Iran’s interference is significant, and that the Shiites of Iraq and Lebanon are demonstrating against it.

He added that Iran says it wants to get the American forces out of the region and what happened to the contrary.

He said, “Iran is behind the Houthi militia missiles that targeted Saudi Arabia,” adding, “We do not seek escalation and we are still investigating the Aramco attacks.”

Al-Jubeir added, “We released 400 Houthi prisoners to prove goodwill.”

On the Libyan crisis, the Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs said that Riyadh is working with Arab and international countries to stabilize Libya, and “it is dangerous that there will be foreign interference in Libya.”
