Insider news & Analysis in Iran

Fareed Zakaria, an author and journalist, recently criticised President Donald Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia in the Washington Post. As he has done on numerous occasions in the past, Mohammad Javad Zarif defended former President Barack Obama’s rapprochement policy of Iran even though it cost him the relationship with Saudi Arabia. He stated that President Trump was wrong to rekindle the alliance with Saudi Arabia because it is a country that represents terrorism and extremism in his opinion.

INU - A few days ago, the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, threatened that Saudi Arabia’s royal family will face a “certain downfall” because it has sided with the United States. His comments were made during a religious event marking the start of Ramadan month. He said that they will “be gone”, will “be toppled” and can be “destroyed”. He is certain of this happening, he asserted.

Iranian mortar fire on Saturday killed a Pakistani civilian in the western Baluchistan province that shares a long border with Iran, a regional Pakistani official said, according to Reuters.

INU - On Wednesday, the Associated Press reported upon a temporary diplomatic breakdown that had occurred between the nation of Qatar and several of its regional neighbors, particularly Saudi Arabia. The incident seemed to be the latest in a long line of indicators that tensions are continuing to worsening between the Arab world and the Islamic Republic of Iran. And those tensions may have been inflamed recently by US President Donald Trump’s visit to the Saudi capital of Riyadh, for the Arab Islamic-American Summit.

After all the controversy about campaign rhetoric regarding Islam and his executive orders on travelers from Middle Eastern countries, U.S. President Donald Trump’s choice of Saudi Arabia - which he called “the heart of the Muslim World’ - as his first stop on his first overseas trip came as quite a surprise to many, writes Dr. Majid Rafizadeh, President of the International American Council and board member of the US-Middle East Chamber of Business and Commerce and Harvard IR.
