Every mistake that Saudi Arabia makes in its regional policies leads to another costly mistake, Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

Hossein Jaberi Ansari added that Tehran's policies are at the opposite end of Riyadh's destructive ones.

"While Saudi Arabia is pushing aggressive policies in the region, Iran is seeking peace and calm, and does not intend to experience tension with its neighbors at all," the spokesman said in a televised interview on Saturday, Tasnim News Agency reported.

Iran's policies are exactly opposed to those of Saudi Arabia, which seeks to "create tension and crisis", he said.

Ansari noted that Riyadh's perception is that fomenting tension and crisis will serve its existence.

The spokesman condemned the attacks on Saudi Arabia's diplomatic buildings in Iran in protest at the execution of eminent cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr and said the Saudis used the incident as an excuse to create a new crisis.

On January 2, Saudi Arabia announced that it has executed Sheikh Nimr, among dozens of others. The execution triggered widespread international condemnation from both political and religious figures.

Following the attacks on Saudi diplomatic buildings in Iran, Riyadh severed its diplomatic ties with Iran.
