KSA has sent messages to Iran's president: Iran gov’t spox

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani received a letter from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) delivered to him by the president of one of the countries, government spokesman Ali Rabiei said on Monday.

He announced his country’s readiness to engage into talks once Saudi Arabia alters its behavior and stops war in Yemen.

 Rabiei did not give any information on what the messages contained.

In a press conference on Monday, Rabiei stressed the need to reach a ceasefire in Yemen, pointing out that Tehran is ready to contribute in achieving this.

In another context, the spokesman held New York responsible for Iran’s failure to hold any dialogues on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, pointing out that Rouhani was ready to hold a meeting with Trump, but the latter did not want to do so and insisted in keeping sanctions against Tehran.

He added that Rouhani was so close to reach a solution in New York, but the US administration prevented this, stressing that Iran will not negotiate under US pressure.

Rabiei confirmed that Washington is eager to hold dialogue with Tehran, but the former’s behavior does not indicate its intention to build confidence collapsed since its withdrawal from the nuclear deal.

He called on Britain, France and Germany to provide evidence proving their allegations over accusing Iran of launching recent attack on Saudi’s Aramco, adding that Tehran is ready to hold peace negotiations in the Strait of Hormuz.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry announced today that it will provide details of the peace plan in the Strait of Hormuz to all Iraq and Gulf countries
