Zarif's assistant says was ready to visit Saudi Arabia


Hossein Gharibi, an assistant to Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javid Zarif, said Iran's ambition is not to wipe Saudi Arabia off the map, adding that he was prepared to visit Saudi Arabia five years ago.

Gharibi said on Tuesday that Iran is "ready to deal when Saudi Arabia wanted and showed preparation", according to Iranian news agency ISNA.

Separately, Gharibi said that Zarif will visit Syria soon, a few days after the latter submitted his resignation which was immediately rejected by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
