Iran’s Embassy in London in a Twitter message stressed that the Islamic Republic cannot be the subject of any negotiations rather it would be the party of any talks on developments in the region.
“All must learn that Iran cannot be the subject of their negotiations. this way proved to be fruitless,” the Twitter message reads.
“Rather she would be the powerful party of any negotiations. Provided, her potency is recognized as the pillar for regional security and its interests are respected accordingly.”
The embassy reacted to a phone call between the Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan Al-Saud and his American counterpart Antony Blinken who reportedly talked about developments in the West Asia region and Iran.
The Saudi official in a Twitter message announced that in his talks with his American counterpart, he had discussed strategic cooperation with the United States.
Blinken also posted a Twitter message saying he discussed several issues with his Saudi counterpart, including what he claimed was an attack on a tanker by Iran in the Arabian Sea.
On July 29, two crew members of the Israeli-managed tanker – Mercer Street – were killed after suspected drone attack on the tanker off the Omani coast.
Israel and its Western allies rushed to blame Iran for the attack without providing any evidence to substantiate their claims.
Tehran has denied any involvement in the incident and categorically dismissed the baseless accusations.
Despite the denial, the US and its allies threatened Iran with military action, prompting a stern warning from the Islamic Republic.
