Saudi Paper: Qatari Extremist Finances Terrorist Groups In Yemen

Gulf Feud Travels As US Issues Mixed Signals

"But Iran is not a strategic partner of Pakistan as Saudi Arabia is", said Karim who is a doctoral researcher focusing on Saudi foreign policy, decision making and its implications for the politics and security of the middle east.

"On the Western side the same type of activity is being undertaken, again by using the diplomatic hospitality of other neighbours", Zarif said.

He stressed that relations between the American and Iranian governments would continue to be at a standstill because "most of our problems with them can not be resolved". Last week Riyadh, along with other Arab governments, severed ties with Qatar, citing its support for Iran as one of the main reasons for the move.

Two days later, suicide bombings and shootings in Tehran killed 17 people.

The Daesh Takfiri terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Press TV reported that a bomber's explosive vest had also been discovered and deactivated in the vicinity of the mausoleum adding that an ambulance belonging to the Welfare Organization of Iran was targeted when terrorists fired 16 bullets at the vehicle at the mausoleum.

Khamenei has made several statements denouncing the United States since the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, while US President Donald Trump has spoken out against Iran in harsh terms since taking office, indicating that he will reverse the previous administration's attempts at rapprochement with Tehran.

The Iranian leader also said the United States and Saudi Arabia are in partnership when it comes to funding Sunni militants.

Adel al-Jubeir, Saudi Arabia's foreign minister, denied the accusation.

Iran's intelligence ministry said the attackers were Iranians who had joined ISIS in Iraq and Syria and returned home to carry out the attack.

"We are facing a proxy warfare in the region as a new trick by the arrogant powers against the Islamic Republic", Izadi said Sunday according to Iran's semiofficial Fars News Agency. During the Barack Obama era, Iran enjoyed the opportunity to fill the vacuum in the Middle East after the White House abandoned its traditional allies, like Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
