Iran’s Foreign Ministry has censured Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir for his “ludicrous, baseless and repetitious” allegations against the Islamic Republic.
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi also said on Friday the Saudi official is straining to distract international attention from the endless scandals of his country, which is “the founding father” of such terror groups as al-Qaeda and ISIL.
It is understandable that the Saudi foreign minister has had difficult days in the wake of the release of the secret 9/11 report, and more difficult days are still ahead of him, the Iranian official added.
Qassemi added that the world, particularly those nations that fell victim to terrorism in the years after September 11, 2001, would certainly realize the significance of the information the report reveals about the Arab kingdom’s support for terrorism.
The senior Iranian diplomat also said that “Jubeir makes ridiculous statements about Iran whenever he is frustrated,” and advised him to think twice about “the repercussions of his statements.”
