Saudi Policies Not Beneficial to Muslim Community

Policies adopted by Saudis are not to the benefit of the Muslim community, a top Iranian security official said.  
Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani made the statement in an interview with the Lebanese news agency Al-Ahd in Tehran on Tuesday, IRNA reported.
According to Shamkhani, bombardment of innocent Yemeni civilians even in the holy month of Ramadan in addition to imposing food and medicine blockade on Muslims for more than a year and alignment of Riyadh's stances with the Zionist regime of Israel are among dangerous policies that will harm the Muslim community. Pointing to tensions in relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia, which escalated after protestors outraged by Riyadh's execution of prominent Shia cleric, Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, stormed the Saudi missions in Tehran and Mashhad in January, Shamkhani said due to Saudi procrastinations caused by troubled bilateral ties, Iranian pilgrims cannot participate in the hajj ritual this year.
On Iran's stance regarding developments in Syria, the SNSC secretary asserted that nations should determine their own destiny, which explains any military plot to deprive Syrians of their legitimate rights to decide their country's future will be doomed.
"The plan to weaken Syria's government and eliminate the Palestinian resistance front is definitely backed by not only the US but also the Zionist regime," he said.
"It is regrettable that some regional states have been involved in the plot to massacre innocent Syrian civilians under the pretext of supporting them."

  Fatal Mistake
"Surprisingly, some of the states, whose people have never experienced democratic voting, call for establishing democracy in Syria," he said, noting that those who stood up for takfiri terrorist groups, which accuse followers of some Islamic sects of apostasy, have realized what a fatal mistake they made as they noticed such terrorists use whatever means to butcher innocent civilians even in states that provide them with financial support.
The official believes that categorizing terrorist cells as "good" and "bad" will yield no result except establishing terrorism in the region, whose tragic consequences will be suffered in Europe and neighboring states.
Referring to last Friday's failed coup attempt in Turkey, which left at least 265 dead, Shamkhani noted that Iran condemns whatever action that destabilizes regional security.
"Although some states were trying to take advantage of the coup attempt in Turkey, Iranian officials announced their support for the legal Turkish government from the beginning of the plot, as Tehran believes such attempts violate democracy," he said.
