Saudi regime is source of radicalism, uses ‘Iran card’ as cover for failures: Top diplomat
Tehran (KNA) - Iran’s Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations has described the Saudi regime as a source of “hatred” and “radicalism,” accusing Riyadh of using the “Iran card” as a cover for its “backwardness” and malign ambitions.
Es'haq Al-e Habib said that Saudi "despots" can not go on forever making accusations against Iran as a cover for failures stemming from their “primitive medieval dogmas”.
The diplomat added that Saudi Arabia’s “destructive” policies should not be overlooked despite the regime’s tendency to blame others for its mistakes.
The comments came in response to Saudi Foreign Minister Ibrahim Abdulaziz al-Assaf’s Friday remarks in the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly. Assaf leveled terrorism charges against Iran and called for added financial pressure on the country.
Rejecting the charges, Al-e Habib said that Riyadh had used fear-mongering against Tehran in order to win western support for its “stupidity, be it in either Syria or Yemen.”
