Saudi Denies Any Diplomatic Efforts To De-Escalate Tensions With Iran

On Wednesday, an official Saudi source denied that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia asked for “any form of mediation” with Iran according to a report of the Saudi Press Agency “SPA”. They source said that Saudi Arabia can’t negotiate with the current Iranian regime.

“The Kingdom believes that the current Iranian regime cannot be negotiated with after a long experience that has shown that it is a regime which does not respect diplomatic rules and norms and the principles of international relations and it is a system perpetuating lying and distorting facts, affirming the Kingdom’s emphasis on the danger of the Iranian regime and its aggressive orientations to peace and world stability” the official source told SPA.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on August 15 that Iran didn’t receive any Saudi signs that indicate the kingdom willingness to improve its relations with Iran. Qassemi hoped that Saudi Arabia will accept the facts in Yemen and stop the war.

On August 13, the Iraqi Minster of interior Qassiem al-Araji claimed that Saudi officials asked Iraq to intermediate between them and Iran to solve many cases, including Yemen war. However, al-Araji officially withdrew its statement today after the Saudi denied any such request.

    and world stability” the official source told SPA.

    They blame others exactly what they are doing. Surely this reort has been written by usa or israel. usa and israel are expert in “perpetuating
    lying and distorting facts”.

    Saudi Arabia is clearly not interested in any peace.

    No peace with Qatar, Yemen, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, the list goes on,

    I suggest the iranian part to answer by :

    “The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that the current Saudi regime cannot be
    negotiated with after a long experience that has shown that it is a
    regime which does not respect diplomatic rules and norms and the
    principles of international relations and it is a system perpetuating
    lying and distorting facts, affirming the Republic of Iran emphasis on the
    danger of the Saudi regime and its aggressive orientations to peace
    and world stability”

    Part of me would love to see the Saudis try to fight the Iranians. Look at those KSA ‘soldiers’ above. They look like boys compared to every picture I have ever seen of the IRGC.

      They are Pakistani and not Saudis their army is made up of foreigners what do you expect of cult that sends many of its poor young people to join DAESH (Al Qaeda and ISIS). They are a laugh but these will fight and die,Saudis will actually run from a hard fight.
