Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Tuesday that “if Saudi Arabia raises regional issues through negotiation and not killing people, Tehran will be with it,”
According to the official agency “IRNA”. “Given the desire of the Saudis to negotiate with Iran, if they seek to negotiate and not kill people to pursue issues in the region.
Then they will certainly have to keep up with the Islamic Republic with them,” said Mohammad Javad Zarif.
His comments came in response to a request by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for Iraq and Pakistan to mediate with Iran.
Zarif stressed that the Foreign Ministry is always ready to cooperate with neighboring countries in order to protect the security of the region, adding: “We have officially announced our position.”
The Iranian diplomat pointed out that President Hassan Rouhani, in the same context, proposed the initiative of “coalition of hope” and “Hormuz for peace” during the meeting of the United Nations General Assembly.
