Saudi Arabia dismissed an Iranian claim that it had sent to Tehran rapprochement missives.
Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel Al Jubeir said in a series of tweets “What a spokesman for the Iranian regime said that the kingdom had sent messages to the Iranian regime is inaccurate.”
“What happened is that some sisterly countries sought calmness and we informed them that the kingdom’s stance always seeks security and stability in the region,” The Minister added.
While addressing Iran Al Jubeir said “Stop your support for terrorism and policies of chaos and destruction.”
“Act as a normal country, not a rogue and a terror-sponsoring state,” he added
In recent months, tensions have mounted between Riyadh and Tehran after a recent attack on Saudi oil facilities blamed on Iran.
On September 14 Drone attacks have set Saudi Arabia’s two major oil facilities of Aramco on fire.
First drone hit Abqaiq, site of Aramco’s largest oil processing plant, while a second drone attack started fires in the Khurais oilfield.
Security teams have controlled the fire, which caused massive loss.
Drone attacks have been verified by the interior ministry of Saudi Arabia.
The US and Saudi Arabia have said that they believe the attack was carried out by Iran, and not by Houthi rebels.
However, Iran has denied involvement in the attack.
Responsibility was claimed by Yemen’s Houthis rebels who are battling with Saudi Arabia in Yemen.
After the attack Saudi Arabia displayed Iranian drones and cruise missiles that it said were used in an attack against Aramco facilities at the weekend.
