Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan remarked with respect to Iran: “I like to call what we see in future as JCPOA++ - something that addresses the nuclear program, which is critically important of course, but also that addresses the regional malign activity including the arming of militias… and of course its ballistic missile programs and other arms programs”. “The issue with Iran is the fact that it continues to believe in imposing its will in the region on exporting its revolution to its neighbours and beyond, and we need to address that”, he argued. In related remarks, Saudi Arabia’s UN ambassador asserted that “the Iran nuclear deal has proven its failure to the entire world. And I don’t think that anybody is going to be naïve enough to go back to the same deal”.
