TEHRAN, Nov. 07 (Press Shia) – Iran’s Foreign Minister Zarif reacting to the resignation of Lebanese PM Saad Hariri following his trip to Saudi Arabia said visits to KSA have proven “hazardous to regional health”.
In a series of tweets on Monday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif reacted to the sudden resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, saying “visits to the belligerent KSA have proven hazardous to regional health. Trump visit led to Bahrain repression followed by Qatar debacle.”
“Visits by [senior advisor to Trump] Kushner & Lebanese PM led to Hariri’s bizarre resignation while abroad. Of course, Iran is accused of interference,” he added.
Following visits to Saudi Arabia, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri on Saturday announced his resignation citing many reasons, including the security situation in Lebanon as well as a possible plot against his life.
Hariri also accused Iran and the Lebanese Resistance Movement Hezbollah of meddling in Arab countries’ affairs.
Zarif went on to add, “KSA bombs Yemen to smithereens, killing 1000’s of innocents including babies, spreads cholera and famine, but of course blames Iran.”
“KSA is engaged in wars of aggression, regional bullying, destabilizing behavior & risky provocations. It blames Iran for the consequences,” Zarif stressed.
