Arabian Foreign Minister Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir said,”from our prospective we only judge Iran by its actions not by its words. The Iranians in the past have said something and done something else. They provide comfort and support for Al-Qaeda with many of the Al-Qaeda leaders living in Iran now for more than 15 years. they have relationships with Taliban that destabilizes Afghanistan.”
Saudi Arabia was one of the countries that recognized the Taliban regime in its early governance in Afghanistan. This country has been accused of cooperating with terrorist groups in the region, especially in Afghanistan.
