On Sunday, Iran accused Saudi Arabia of supporting terrorist activities when a high-ranking Saudi prince, who is also an ex-intelligence expert, made a speech at a demo in Paris organized by exiled Iranian rebels, saying that he wanted the Iranian government to plunge.
An unidentified Iranian Foreign Ministry official revealed to Iranian media agents, “The Saudis are resorting to well-known terrorists … as they have also done in Iraq, Yemen and Syria. This shows that they use terrorism and terrorists to further their aims against regional Islamic countries.”
Prince Turki al-Faisal spoke at the above-mentioned rally on Saturday which was organized by the political wing of the exiled People’s Mujahideen Organisation of Iran (PMOI). The PMOI seeks to defeat Iran’s clerical leadership formed by the 1979 Islamic revolution.
Several Western political figures, including former US House of Representatives speaker Newt Gingrich, also attended the protest which was fully broadcasted by Saudi media.
Prince Turki, also an ex-ambassador to Washington and London, had said in his speech, “Your legitimate struggle against the [Iranian] regime will achieve its goal, sooner or later. I, too, want the fall of the regime”
The Saudis defend themselves by accusing Iran of fuelling religious feud in the Middle East and has a hidden agenda to take over the region when Iran accused Saudi Arabia of backing the militant Islamic State group and other extremist groups, which Riyadh denies.
