Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani who was addressing a meeting of Judiciary high-ranking officials on Wednesday, condemned Saudi Arabian air strikes against Yemen; “Saudi assault against Yemen is a disastrous event for the Islamic world which should be addressed through negotiation, otherwise, violation of borders of a sovereign country who wants to decide on its own destiny, by a country with some claims to Islam would not be gone unanswered,” told Larijani to the meeting.
“We are hopeful to see Saudi officials to think twice and end bloodshed and violence against innocent children and women; this is the outcome of an autocratic state where there is no elections, no parliament, and no record of democracy and ruled by an authoritarian leader,” emphasized head of the Judiciary.
He also pointed to ‘shameless and unfortunate harassment by Saudi security authorities at the airport of two Iranian young Hajj pilgrims; “we would not ignore the security of our citizens, and demand that Foreign Ministry address the issue seriously,” he asserted.
Amoli Larijani condemned the despicable act, saying that harassment of two pilgrims by employees of a regime who claims to be serving two Holy Shrines are not acceptable, and “we demand that the perpetrators be punished for their abominable act so as to be an example effective to stop such cases in the future.”
Amoli Larijani believed that nuclear negotiations in Lausanne was the most important issue of Iran and the world as well and extended his gratitude to negotiation team especially Foreign Minister Javad Zarif; “we thank nuclear negotiators in their good job during a difficult mission; we should support negotiators so that they bring an outcome beneficial to country and nation; if nuclear negotiators firmly attach to the framework drawn by the Leader in protecting nuclear rights, they will enjoy the majority support,” he emphasized.
Amoli Larijani recommended nuclear negotiators to act more carefully in future talks especially drafting the final deal; “our nuclear negotiators should feel the national support for themselves and should work so that the deal be as transparent as possible in order to rule out any ambiguity which would be used by the other side,” he concluded.
