Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan contended that “all around the region, Iran continues to be emboldened… Iran is extremely active in the region with its negative activity, whether it's continuing to supply the Huthis with weapons or endangering shipping in the Arabian Gulf”. He further noted that “we certainly support a deal with Iran as long as that deal ensures that Iran will not now or ever gain access to nuclear weapons technology”. Farhan went on to highlight the importance of Iran “engaging in the region as a state actor in a normal way... not supporting militias, not sending weapons to armed groups, and most importantly, giving up a nuclear program which might be used... to develop nuclear weapons”.
