The relationship between Iran and Saudi Arabia deserves to be better, though differences between the two oil-producing Middle Eastern states appear to be narrowing, President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday in New York, Reuters reported. “Our relationship with Saudi Arabia ... deserves to be warmer,” Rouhani told a group of senior editors in New York ahead of the annual gathering of world leaders at the UN General Assembly. “Saudi Arabia’s positions are getting closer and closer to us.” Speaking through an interpreter, Rouhani added that if the two nations’ differences are truly narrowing, “relations with Saudi Arabia will grow closer.”
