 A senior Saudi official posted a video showing contrasting statements about Saudi Arabia by Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and an IRGC official, opining that "the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia learned the hard way that Zarif is just another face of the same coin; now we know who is the jockey and who is the horse". He added that "perhaps Zarif announced his resignation because he finally understood that his peaceful rhetoric in Europe isn't worth much back home. We always listen to what is said in Tehran and not by Zarif in Europe".
