Addressing the closing ceremony of the 32nd Islamic Unity Conference in Tehran on Monday night, Iranian Parliament Speaker Larijani pointed to the Syrian issue and said from the very beginning of the crisis, Iran, unlike some countries, had emphasized that the issue would be resolved through political agreements.

He further addressed the Saudis and the United Arab Emirates, saying that they made a mistake in the early years after the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution by standing against Iran and provoking Saddam Hussein to wage a war on the country.

“But then you (Saudis and Emiratis) said that you had made a mistake and we overlooked your fault but today, we are not going to forget your mistake of supporting the US and the Zionists,” Larijani said, adding, “We will respond to your behaviors.”

He further pointed to the US President Trump’s  “Deal of The Century”, saying that Washington seeks to help Israel dominate the Middle East by such a plot but Iran is determined to foil it.
