US, Saudi Unable to Alter Facts on IS

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says the US and Saudi Arabia cannot alter the facts about their sponsorship of the self-styled Islamic State and Iran's role in defeating the terror group. In a post on his Twitter account on Thursday, Zarif responded to the latest remarks by Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir, who accused Iran of backing sectarianism, Press TV reported. Speaking at a panel in the World Economic Forum in Davos on Wednesday, Jubeir claimed that Iran was promoting a "vision of darkness" in the region while Saudi Arabia had a "vision of light." "In the Middle East, we have two competing visions. Vision of light ... and we have a vision of darkness, and the vision of darkness is sectarianism, it's trying to restore an empire that was destroyed thousands of years ago, it's using sectarianism and terrorism to interfere in the affairs of other countries," he contended.   In response, Zarif said no "alternative facts" provided by Riyadh and Washington could diminish Iran's successful contribution to the defeat of IS.
