Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir slammed Iran on Tuesday, saying that Tehran supports terrorism. Al-Jubeir added that the reports of a normalization process between his country and Iran are "laughable."

Al-Jubeir denied the reports that Iran and Saudi Arabia have agreed to exchange diplomatic visits. "If Iran wants to have good relations with Saudi Arabia, it has to change its policies," he told reporters in London. "It has to respect international law."

The Saudi minister continued to attack Iran, claiming that Tehran is behind the instability in the region. According to al-Jubeir, the Iranian support for Hezbollah and terror attacks play a major role in the regional situation.

Regarding the crisis with the Gulf nation of Qatar, al-Jubeir mentioned Al Jazeera, the TV station and news outlet headquartered in Doha. Al-Jubeir claimed that only when the Qatari government stops meddling in the affairs of other countries and supporting terrorism, the crisis will be resolved.
