SMA News – Riyadh – Agencies Saudi Minister of Foreign Affair, Adel Al-Jubair, indicated that Riyadh supports US policies towards Tehran concerning modifications of the nuclear deal with Iran. In his press conference with US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, Al-Jubair said: ” The challenges in the region have been reviewed, whether in Lebanon, in Syria, supporting Iraq, Iran’s negative interferences in the region, the situation in Yemen, supporting the five countries on the African Coast, and dealing with the crisis in Libya”. Al-Jubair called for more sanctions against Iran because of ” for violating international resolutions regarding ballistic missiles and for supporting terrorism and intervening in the affairs of the courtiers of the region”.
On the other hand, secretary Pompeo said: ” Saudi Arabia’s security is a priority for the United States of America. A political solution is the only way to advance long-term stability in Yemen and end the suffering, and I know we agree on that. Iran destabilizes this entire region. It supports proxy militias and terrorist groups. It arms – it is an arms dealer to the Houthi rebels in Yemen, and Iran conducts cyber hacking campaigns”. He added: ” I also want to highlight today that the nuclear deal has failed to moderate the regime’s conduct in many other areas. I highlighted a few. In fact, Iran has only behaved worse since the deal was approved”.
