Saudi welcomes US blacklisting of Iran Revolutionary Guards

Reuters – Saudi Arabia welcomes the U.S. decision to designate Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a foreign terrorist organization, Saudi state media said on Tuesday.

Saudi Arabia, led by a Sunni Muslim royal family, has accused Shia Muslim Iran of interfering in its and other Middle Eastern countries’ internal affairs.

“The U.S. decision translates the Kingdom’s repeated demands to the international community of the necessity of confronting terrorism supported by Iran,” SPA news agency said, citing a foreign ministry source.
