Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi has rejected “baseless” remarks made by Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir who had claimed the Islamic Republic is responsible for the continuation of war in Yemen.
“Al-Jubeir was forced to leave his [bad] habit at a certain period, and it was a very good move, but he is developing his habit again and is uttering irrelevant words against Iran,” added Qassemi.
The spokesperson said the disasters are caused by Jubeir’s government.
“These words are irrelevant and hackneyed, and these efforts to pin the blame on others cannot solve Saudis’ problems because universal truths are clear.”
Speaking at the two-day Abu Dhabi conference, which ended on March 2, al-Jubeir said “they were confronted with the war in Yemen and that Iran was still perpetuating its aggressive actions against Arab nations, which poses threat to peace and stability in the region.”
Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the UAE opened the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation meeting in Abu Dhabi on Friday.
“We call on Iran to review its policies and non-interference in the affairs of states and stop the spread of chaos and sectarianism,” he said during his opening speech.
