"Undoubtedly, Saudi Arabia is the most infamous supporter of terrorism in the
world, and the root cause and origin of terrorism which has entangled the entire
world, specially, the Middle-East, is nowhere but in Saudi Arabia and the
extremist thoughts that the regime promotes and supports financially," Foreign
Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Saturday.
He lashed out at al-Jubeir for misusing the UN tribune to raise allegations of terrorism against Iran, and said the remarks by Saudi foreign minister, whose country has launched a catastrophic and destructive war against the Muslim country of Yemen for 5 years and supports extremism, violence and warmongering, are rooted in the thoughts promoted by him and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Saudi Arabia has been promoting Wahhabism in the world which is the root cause of Takfiri terrorism.
In relevant remarks in June, Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani blamed Wahhabism, mainly promoted by Saudi Arabia, for the formation of Takfiri terrorist groups that have stirred crisis in the regional states.
"Wahhabism was the ideological bed for Takfiri terrorism and the ISIL was created based on Wahhabism, a plot hatched by certain world powers and the role played by a number of ignorant and contending regional states," Shamkhani said in a meeting with his Uzbek counterpart Viktor Makhmudov in Tehran.
He referred to the US attempts to misuse terrorism to its own benefits as well as regional concerns about the transfer of the ISIL terrorists to Afghanistan and Central Asia, and said, "The Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to share its bright and successful experiences in fighting terrorism with other regional countries."
