Saudi Arabia to cut trade links with Iran

The breakdown in relations between the two countries will extend to the cutting of air traffic between the two countries

Published: Updated:

Saudi Arabia’s breach of ties with Iran will extend to cutting air traffic between the countries, ending commercial relations and barring its citizens from travel to the Islamic republic, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir told Reuters on Monday.

Iranian pilgrims will still be welcome to visit Makkah and Madinah, Jubeir said in an interview, adding that Iran must behave like “a normal country” instead of “a revolution” and respect international norms before ties could be restored.
