Gulf News

Dubai: Saudi Arabia has denied that it made a request for mediation with Iran, an official source told the Saudi Press Agency.

The source said that news that has been circulating on a variety of news media sites was “completely untrue”.

Saudi Arabia stresses the firm position that it rejects any rapprochement with the Iranian regime which “is spreading terrorism and extremism in the region and the world and is interfering in the affairs of other countries.

The source added that the Kingdom believes that the current Iranian regime cannot be negotiated with after long experience which has shown that it is a regime which does not respect diplomatic rules and norms and the principles of international relations, calling it a system perpetuating lying and distorting facts.

This, the source said, affirmed the Kingdom’s emphasis on the danger of the Iranian regime and its aggressive orientations to peace and world stability. The source went on to call on all countries around the world to work to deter the Iranian regime from its hostile actions and compel it to comply with the international law, United Nations resolutions, and diplomatic norms and regulations.
