Saudi diplomat says Iranian consulate burning a result

Saudi ambassador to Egypt Osama Nugali commented on the burning of the Iranian consulate in Najaf on Wednesday, saying that Iran should expect more as the "coming will not be easier."

"Iran's real role in the region is to sow discord and destabilize security through its interventions in Iraq and Lebanon," Nugali was quoted as saying. "Iran is spreading chaos in Arab countries, sucking blood and causing economic collapse."

Regarding the burning of the consulate, he stressed that "Iran has already done similar acts when it burned the Saudi embassy in Tehran, and that what happened yesterday to the Iranian consulate in Najaf is only some of the consequences of what the Iranian regime did before."
