Anwar Gargash, the UAE minister of state for foreign affairs, said on Wednesday that Saudi Arabia has embarrassed the Iranian regime by how they “dealt with Iranian pilgrims, despite the incitement from Iranian media in the matter.”

Gargash made his comments on his Twitter account, where he also backed the statement of Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir on the rumors of reconciliation with Iran as ridiculous.
