S. Arabia Main Destabilizing Force in Region

A member of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission said Saudi Arabia is the chief culprit behind regional instability.
"Certainly, Saudi Arabia is the main cause of instability and tension in the region," Ahmad Shouhani told ICANA on Saturday.
His remarks came after Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir accused Iran of following interventionist policies on Thursday, saying, "We are determined that Iran should not have a negative intervention in the region or in Arab countries."
"The policy of the Islamic Republic is based on developing friendly and fair relations with other countries," Shouhani said, adding, "But some countries like Saudi Arabia seek to expand their influence in the region, which has undermined regional stability."
Stressing that Iran is not after meddling in other countries' internal affairs, he said the "rookie" Saudi official acknowledged "quite explicitly" Iran's "substantial" role in the region.
"Saudi officials had better consider altering their approach and policies instead of leveling baseless accusations against Iran."
The lawmaker said Riyadh is under a delusion to blame Tehran for any problem facing the region and this is what prompted the Arab Kingdom in the first place to launch a military campaign against Yemen.
A Saudi-led coalition has been carrying out air strikes on Yemen to try to restore the exiled government of Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi
"The Saudis claim their attack against Yemen is aimed at limiting Iran's influence in the region, but experts believe that the main motive behind the move is to contain a wave of revolutions in the region," which Saudi officials fear might spill over into their own territory, the legislator said.
Referring to Saudi-Israeli strategic alliance, Shouhani said, "Definitely, the only threat to regional countries is the evil alliance between the Saudis and the Zionists and their support for terrorist groups, particularly Daesh (the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant)."
