- Saudi Arabia has called on world leaders to form a united front against Iran’s aggression in the region
- The Kingdom plays a significant role in the G20
JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told leaders of the G20 countries that the Kingdom does not want a war with Iran, said a senior official.
The crown prince is currently touring Japan, after heading the Kingdom’s delegation at the 14th G20 summit in Osaka.
Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel Al-Jubeir said the crown prince told the leaders of the summit they need to take a strong attitude toward Iran, reported Al Arabiya.
Shedding light on the crown prince’s visit, Al-Jubeir said Mohammed bin Salman stressed that Iran must not be allowed to continue its aggressive policy and that an international position must be taken to halt Tehran’s practices.
“The Iranian regime should not be allowed to continue its aggressive policies, such as targeting ships carrying oil and oil pipelines,” pointing out that this is a target against energy security and the global economy.
Al-Jubeir was speaking in Tokyo during a joint meeting with the Saudi Minister of Trade and Investment, Dr. Majid Al-Qasabi, and Minister of Information, Turki Al-Shabana, and their Japanese counterparts, as part of the crown prince’s accompanying delegation during his Asia tour.
“The Kingdom should not allow the Iranian regime to continue its aggressive policies, such as targeting ships carrying oil and targeting oil pipelines,” he said. “This is a target for energy security and the global economy,” he said.
