A senior Foreign Ministry official dismissed as baseless recent comments by the Saudi foreign minister against the Islamic Republic, warning that there is a limit to Tehran’s patience.

“We warn Adel al-Jubeir not to test the patience of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, deputy foreign minister for Arab and African affairs, said on Sunday, Press TV reported.

Amir-Abdollahian was responding to the Saudi diplomat’s remarks on Saturday that Riyadh hoped Tehran would use additional earnings that it would make following the implementation of its July nuclear agreement with world powers to develop its economy “rather than for aggressive policies.”
