Amir Abdollahian stresses Iran’s constructive regional role

Hossein Amir-Abdollahian

Unlike some countries that make arbitrary use of terrorism and play with regional security, Tehran strongly supports Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and the countries exposed to the terrorist threats, the diplomat said.

Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian blasted the recent allegations of Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir against Iran, and reiterated that the Islamic Republic has always played a constructive role in the region.

“Iran has always played a constructive role in the region,” Amir Abdollahian said on Sunday.

“Tehran unlike some countries that make arbitrary use of terrorism and play with the regional security strongly supports Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and the countries exposed to the terrorist threats,” he added.

He pointed to Iran’s support for the regional peace and stability, and said, “The security of Iran, Iraq, Yemen and Persian Gulf states are intertwined.”

Amir Abdollahian went on to say that Iran supports good relations with Riyadh, and said, “We expect Saudi Arabia to play a constructive role in the region and by adopting correct and calculated diplomacy prevent the spread of war, strengthening terrorism and intensifying insecurity.”

On Sunday, the Saudi foreign minister told a joint press conference with his Egyptian counterpart in Cairo that his country seeks better relations with Iran, but conditioned those better ties on an end to alleged “interference” in Arab affairs and a halt to “support for terrorism”.
