Iran Bitter At Trump For Saudi Visit

Iran bitter at Trump for Saudi Arabia visit


Iran is accusing President Trump and the United States of “milking” Saudi Arabia for petro-dollars after the U.S. leader visited the Arab country over the weekend.

The relationship between Iran and Saudi Arabia has been more than just contentious, such as their differing views on the ongoing conflicts in Syria, Yemen and Iraq. During Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia, the President signed a $110 billion weapons deal to aid Saudi Arabia’s involvement in those conflicts.

Trump also made it a point to slam Iran during his speech in Riyadh. “From Lebanon to Iraq to Yemen, Iran funds, arms and trains terrorists, militias and other extremist groups that spread destruction and chaos across the region,” Trump said on Sunday.

He then called on all countries to work together to isolate Iran “until the Iranian regime is willing to be a partner for peace.”

However, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif came back at Trump and his accusations that Iran is the centerpiece of instability. He cites his country’s weekend elections in Iran as being successful, and then commented on the lack of democracy in Saudi Arabia.

“Iran — fresh from real elections — attacked by @POTUS in that bastion of democracy and moderation,” Zarif tweeted, referring to the US president. He then accused the U.S. of its “milking” into Saudi Arabia for billions of dollars from foreign policy deals.

“Unfortunately, with the hostile and offensive policies of American officials, we see once again the reinforcement of terrorist groups in the region… and the dictators that support them,” said Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi on Monday.
