During his speech at the Munich Security Conference on Sunday, Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir said that Iran has trained several terrorist factions and executed terrorist operations around the world.

He added that Saudi Arabia is continuing to put pressure on Iran to stop supporting extremist groups.

“Didn’t Iran train and manage the terrorist factions that bombed the Saudi Khobar Towers?” he said.

Al-Jubeir said that the region’s problems began with the Khomeini revolution in 1979. He also said that Iran is housing al-Qaeda cells, including Osama bin Laden.

He stressed that the country has to abide by international laws if it wants to be treated as a regular state.
