No Shift in Saudi Strategy

No Shift in Saudi Strategy

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said Iran has received no signal pointing to Riyadh’s desire to improve its relations with Tehran. “Though we have not seen any clear sign showing Saudi Arabia’s willingness [for better relations], we welcome any mediation efforts,” ISNA quoted Qasemi as saying on Wednesday. Visiting Iraqi Interior Minister Qassem al-Araji said on Sunday that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman had asked Iraq to help mend the oil-kingdom’s ties with Tehran. Qasemi said any mediation by Iraqi officials would be “a positive thing”, providing it would lead to “security and stability in the region”. Meanwhile, a senior Saudi Arabian official denied reports that his country had requested Iraq to mediate between the kingdom and Iran for better relations, according to Saudi Arabia’s state agency SPA. These reports are “entirely untrue”, the official said, adding that Riyadh “adheres to its unchanged policy of rejecting any form of rapprochement with Iran.”
