Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir said Sunday that Iran is the only country interfering in the Middle East’s affairs.

Jubeir, who was speaking at a joint press conference with his Egyptian counterpart, also said that the Islamic Republic is supporting terrorism.

The minister added that his country will not stand idly in the face of Iran’s meddling in the region’s affairs.

Speaking about regional matters, Jubeir said there is an ongoing coordination between the Kingdom and Egypt regarding both Yemen and Syria.

Also during the conference, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri said that his country shares similar views with Saudi Arabia regarding the Yemeni crisis.

Shukri reiterated Egypt’s participation in the military coalition led by Saudi Arabia that is fighting Houthi militias in Yemen.

Shukri also condemned the latest mosque attack in Saudi Arabia last Friday which claimed the lives of four people, including the suicide bomber.
