Jeddah- Saudi Arabia has stressed its firm position to reject any form of rapprochement with the Iranian regime which spreads terrorism in the region and the world and meddles in the affairs of other countries, an official source at the foreign ministry said.

Riyadh has not requested any mediation in any way with Iran, the source was quoted as saying by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) on Wednesday.

The source pointed out that what has been circulated in the news in this regard is completely false.

The source stressed “the Kingdom’s adherence to its firm position that 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 Kingdom believes that the current Iranian regime can not be negotiated with after a long experience has shown that it does not respect diplomatic rules and norms and the principles of international relations, the state-run agency quoted the source as saying.

The statement also accused the Iranian regime of “lying and distorting facts.”

It warned from “the danger of the Iranian regime and its aggressive orientations to peace and world stability,” urging all countries to work to deter it from its hostile actions and compel it to comply with international law, United Nations resolutions, and diplomatic norms and regulations.
