Spokesman slams Saudi FM for anti-Iran statements

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hossein Jaberi-Ansari said on Friday that Iraqi nation does not need the biggest supporter of destability and terrorism in Iraq, region and world to to tell them who their friend or foe is.

He made the remarks in reaction to anti-Iran statements of Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir on Iran-Iraq relations.

Ansari said that the Iranian military advisors are in Iraq under Major General Qasem Soleimani on the request of the legal government of Iraq to fight terrorists and extremists which have made the country insecure and unstable.

Ansari called on al-Jubeir to abandon deceiving public opinion and not to forget that his country is currently considered as the most dangerous supporter of terrorism and destability in the international scene.

In an interview with Russia Today on Thursday, Al-Jubeir claimed that Iran is interfering in Iraq's internal affairs.
