Ill-Considered Remarks to Harm Saudi Interests

Ill-Considered Remarks to Harm Saudi Interests

First Vice President Es’haq Jahangiri slammed recent anti-Tehran remarks by Saudi officials, saying the comments are made by some “rookie groups” that have come to power in the Arab kingdom.
“Saudi Arabia and others in the region are not in a position to seek tension with Iran,” Jahangir said in a televised program on Monday, Tasnim News Agency reported.
“The Islamic Republic is not interested in tensions [with the regional countries] and is willing to improve its relations with them,” he said. “Unfortunately, in some countries, including Saudi Arabia, some rookie groups have come to power that do not know much about their boundaries, history and geography.” The first vice president emphasized that these groups make comments that are not in their interest, adding that Iran graciously overlooks their comments so that relations are not strained further. Jahangiri expected these countries to take note of Iran’s approach and give up their hostile stance against the Islamic Republic. The comments came after Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir again talked recklessly against Iran in the recent Munich Security Conference, in which he accused Tehran of his own country’s crime of destabilizing the region. The world is not blind to ongoing Saudi attacks on civilian targets in Yemen, or its funding of terrorists occupying the Iraqi and Syrian territories.
