Saudi Arabia not in priority list of exports market
Saudi Arabia is not in the priority list of targeted exports markets, said Deputy Head of Iranian Trade Development Organization Mohammad-Reza Movadedi.
He said that Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Djibouti have not been not in the priority list of exports markets, adding given what happened and the good atmosphere in international scene, it is believed that there are many alternatives in Europe and other countries which can work more effectively for us and even better than regional markets.
Saudi Arabia severed diplomatic relations with Iran on January 3 following demonstrations held in front of the Saudi embassy in Tehran and its consulate in the northeastern city of Mashhad by angry protesters censuring the Al Saud family for the killing of Nimr. Some people mounted the walls of the consulate in Mashhad while incendiary devices were hurled at the embassy in Tehran.
Some 50 people were detained over the transgression.
