|Iran denies S. Arabia’s claims of intervention in Syria||
TEHRAN – Iran has denied Saudi Arabia’s recent claims that the Islamic Republic has been involved in the Syrian crisis, calling Riyadh an accomplice of Takfiri terrorists in their crimes against the defenseless people of Syria.
Speaking at a news conference with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in Jeddah on Tuesday, Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal said that the kingdom “cannot be silent” about Iranian intervention and called for a resolution to ban arms flows to the Syrian government, Reuters reported.
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Araqchi said on Wednesday that Saudi Arabia was reiterating the claims of Iran’s intervention in Syria while Riyadh, in violation of all international laws and conventions, was arming terrorists in Syria with various kinds of light and heavy weapons.
He called Saudi Arabia a great country with enormous potential to promote unity among Islamic countries and help resolve problems facing the Muslim world, adding that it was sad that the Arab country was using its potential in the opposite direction.
