Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister has rejected the accusation by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards that his country was behind the twin attacks in Tehran.
Speaking in Berlin, Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir said there was no evidence to implicate Saudi Arabia in the attacks in Tehran, which is Riyadh’s arch regional rival.
He condemned the attacks and said Riyadh had no knowledge of who was responsible.
He repeated Riyadh’s longstanding view that Iran is the primary sponsor of terrorism around the world.
Jubeir said Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries would be willing to reestablish normal ties with Iran if it changed its behaviour and stopped supporting militants and fighters in Lebanon, Yemen, Syria and elsewhere across the region.
