Some Arabic countries were aware of US President Donald Trump’s decision on Jerusalem and even coordinated it with him, the Iranian Foreign ministry said yesterday.

“We consider this a betrayal to the Palestinian issue and the Islamic world,” the ministry stressed.

It noted that Tehran would attend the extraordinary Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Summit on Jerusalem in Turkey, adding that it had prepared a programme to support the Palestinian cause.

On the Saudi-Iranian relationship, the ministry pointed out: “There has been no change or development in our relations with Saudi Arabia,” adding “Saudi Arabia is still pursuing a wrong approach with its neighbouring countries in the region.”

The only way to end the Yemen crisis, the ministry added, is to stop the Saudi aggression, noting that Iran has not provided Yemen with missiles.
