AhlulBayt News Agency - Iran says former Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Turki al-Faisal, and his ilk face a fate similar to that of the former Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein.
Speaking to IRIB upon his arrival in the Kazakh capital of Astana on Tuesday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif criticized the former Saudi intelligence chief for taking part in a rally held by the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) terrorist group in the French capital of Paris.
“He [Faisal] has created both al-Qaeda and Taliban and played a very disgraceful role in the past record of Al Saud regime,” he said.
Zarif added that the former Saudi official’s presence in the MKO rally shows the “incompetence and lack of insight” of Faisal and his ilk who, like Saddam, tie their future to terrorists.
The top Iranian diplomat noted that it was not the first time that the MKO terrorists played such a “political game” in France.
The former Saudi spy chief attended an annual meeting of the MKO in Paris on Saturday and gave a 30-minute address to the gathering.
