Iranian claims that Saudi Arabia has sent messages to the Iraninan regime are inaccurate, said Saudi Arabia’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir on Twitter on Wednesday.

“We informed them that the Kingdom’s position is to always seek for security and stability in the region,” says Saudi Arabia’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir after Riyadh was contacted by other countries seeking to calm the tensions.

“Stop your support for terrorism, policies of chaos and destruction, interference in the internal affairs of Arab states, development of weapons of mass destruction, and ballistic missile program. Act like a normal state and not a rouge one supporting terrorism,” al-Jubeir added in another tweet regarding the Kingdom’s message to Iran.

Al-Jubeir also denied the claims made by an Iranian regime spokesperson that Saudi Arabia intended to talk to Iran regarding de-escalation in Yemen.

“The Kingdom did not and will not talk with the Iranians. Yemen is the affair of the Yemenis with all its elements, and the reason behind the Yemeni crisis is the Iranian destabilizing role of its stability and disruptive role in the political efforts,” he said.

The Saudi Arabian Minister of State for Foreign Affairs said peace was the last thing the Iranian regime wanted in Yemen.

“It provides its followers with weapons and missiles targeting the sons of Yemen and the security of the Kingdom and the countries of the region as part of the approach of this expansionist regime seeking to impose its control on Arab countries through its militias,” he said.

“If the Iranian regime wants peace and de-escalation in Yemen, why has it not provided any developmental or humanitarian assistance to the brotherly Yemeni people throughout its history instead of the destruction that weapons and ballistic missiles bring?” al-Jubeir asked in a final tweet.
