Saudi Rhetoric Dismissed as Hot Air

A foreign policy advisor to the Leader of Islamic Revolution dismissed recent remarks by a Saudi official to bring “the battle” for regional influence to Iran as empty rhetoric, noting that Riyadh will not risk the Islamic Republic’s stern response.
Saudi Arabia’s deputy crown prince and defense minister, Mohammed bin Salman al-Saud, said in May that any struggle for influence between Riyadh and Tehran ought to take place “inside Iran, not in Saudi Arabia”.
“The Islamic Republic will not tolerate the Saudi bellicose behavior, although they lack the ability and courage to do this. They are all talk,” ISNA quoted Ali Akbar Velayati as saying after a meeting with the head of the Swedish parliament’s research center, Gunnar Fors, in Tehran on Tuesday.
Regional powerhouses Iran and Saudi Arabia, which are at odds over various issues, have not had diplomatic relations since early 2016.
Bin Salman’s comments came weeks before the June 7 terrorist attacks in Tehran claimed by the so-called Islamic State, the most hated terrorist group which is widely believed to be created, supported and bank-rolled by the oil kingdom.
