Saudi Minister Adel al-Jubeir: Iranians must decide whether they want to be members of international community or marginalized


Iranians should decide whether they want to be members of the international community or be marginalized, said Adel al-Jubeir, the Saudi minister of state on Thursday.

The minister participated in a press conference at the Central University Library in Bucharest and spoke about security challenges in the area. He said Iran is the greatest challenge.

“Iran does not believe in borders or the sovereignty of nations, Iran thinks that every Shiite belongs to Iran. It is like saying that all Catholics belong to Italy. That is not acceptable. Iran is a country that backs terrorism, that offers missiles to terrorist organizations and was behind attacks and the assassination of diplomats,” Adel al-Jubeir said.

He described the situation as “a never ending story”.

“They export arms, try to make recruitments to  extend the Revolution. That is why the international community has set up sanctions against Iran, because of the support they show to terrorist activities and for other aggressive activities.”

The high Saudi official said that Iranians must make a decision about getting in line with international rules.

“We often say that Iranians should decide whether they want to be members of international community or they want to be marginalized. Now they are so. If one does not observe world order rules, established in the 17th century, then one must expect the world to react negatively. That is what is happening. If Iranians change their behaviour, I think they can become a great nation again and members of the international community. Until they give up the idea of exporting Revolution, a thing found in their Constitution, and until they accept the principles of international law and the idea of non involvement in the politics of other countries, it is impossible to have relations with them,” said Adel al-Jubeir.

The official spoke about “zero tolerance”policy versus extremism practiced by Saudi Arabia.

“We have zero tolerance against extremism because extremists are not interested in Bucharest of London. Mecca is all they want. So we are their target. To finance an ideology whose objective is to destroy, means we are not rational, we are something else,” the official showed.
