  • US secretary of state arrives in Riyadh for official visit

Pompeo, visiting Riyadh on his first trip as the top US diplomat, said he "stressed the importance" of Gulf unity in talks with Saudi officials.

"What the USA secretary of state calls cooperation with Riyadh is in fact aimed at destabilization and further escalation of conflicts, arms race and extremism due to adventurism of some inexperienced and warmongering politicians of Saudi Arabia", Ghasemi said.

"They will find a solution, and I think they will all agree that it is in the interest of all that the Gulf States find a way to be together", he said.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt severed diplomatic and transport links with Qatar on June 5, accusing the country of supporting Sunni extremist groups and Iranian-backed Shiite militants. Pompeo also addressed the rift between Qatar and its neighbours, telling reporters after leaving Riyadh: "We are hopeful that they will, in their own way, figure out how to remove the dispute between them".


During his first tour of the Middle East as secretary of state, Pompeo rehashed false allegations against Iran and repeated Washington's threat of quitting the Iran nuclear deal if the accord is not fixed.

At a joint press conference with Pompeo in Riyadh, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir declared, "We support Trump's policy toward Iran, especially with regard to the nuclear agreement".

"Iran destabilises this entire region. It is just a worthless claim geared to the perpetuation of Saudi Arabia's warmongering, its aggression against Yemen, and the destructive and destabilising presence of foreign powers in the region".
