Iran’s Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, says Tehran had credible information about Saudi Arabia’s plots to assassinate senior Iranian officials including Major-General Qassem Soleymani. Zarif was commenting on a New York Times report that Riyadh had contracted private companies to carry out the operations. He cited recent terrorist attacks in Iran as the result of a Saudi threat last year when Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman pledged to take war onto Iranian soil. The top Iranian diplomat added that the entire world has opened its eyes to Riyadh’s activities such as blockading Qatar, bombing Yemen, its detention of the Lebanese premier and the recent murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
