Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani said Saudi Arabia’s brazen support for terrorist groups has become a source of concern for many western and regional governments.

“A regular topic in talks with the officials of various western and Middle East countries have been their “harsh criticism” of Saudi policies and their concerns about the kingdom’s measures to create and support terrorism,” Shamkhani said at a meeting with Syrian Speaker Hadiya Khalaf Abbas in Tehran on Wednesday, Tasnim News Agency reported.

“The irony is that today, the biggest sponsors of terrorism who have jeopardized world security are blatantly accusing Iran of threatening peace,” he said. shamkhani described “the instrumental use” of terrorism as a “fixed policy” of Israeli and Saudi officials. The top Syrian lawmaker pointed to Israel’s logistical and military support for terrorist groups fighting the Damascus government, saying such backing reveals “close bonds between Israel and takfiri terrorism” for the purpose of destabilizing the region.

Syria has been gripped by civil war since March 2011 with various militant groups currently controlling parts of it.
