Saudi Foreign Minister Prince bin Farhan indicated that “we are confident the international community will work hard to ensure that the deficiencies in the [JCPOA] are eventually addressed and they will also address the regional instability that is caused by Iran’s activities”. He also expressed readiness for dialogue “if Iran changes its behaviour”. Iran’s diplomatic spokesperson subsequently contended that “it is deplorable that Riyadh’s view is still focused on the capitals outside the region… We advise Saudi Arabia to join the course of intra-regional negotiations and distance itself from the path of rebellion”.
