Iran accuses Saudi Arabia of support for terrorism in region

Iran's Foreign Ministry on Saturday said the support of Saudi Arabia for terrorists is the source of chaos in the Middle East, Press TV reported.

"Saudi Arabia has created chaos in the region through its organized support for Takfiri and terrorist groups," Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi made the remarks reacting to the recent allegations leveled by Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman against Iran.

In an interview with the American magazine Foreign Affairs published on Thursday, Prince Salman accused Iran of creating instability, encouraging terrorism and violating the sovereignty of other nations in the region.

Saudi Arabia is regarded as the "cause of bloody crimes against Arab nations of Syria, Iraq and Yemen," Qasemi said, adding that it has also "committed treason against Muslims, particularly the Arab world and the cause of Palestine" by siding with the Israeli regime.

"Instead of such fruitless blame game, the Saudi statesmen should better move to rectify their approach and attitude and think about the consequences of their destructive policies and measures," Qasemi was quoted as saying.

The Islamic republic and Saudi Arabia have been involved in bitter controversies over the ongoing conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.
