“Iran remains the single main sponsor of terrorism in the world,” Adel Al Jubeir told delegates at the Munich Security Conference. “It’s determined to upend the order in Middle East ... (and) until and unless Iran changes its behavior it would be very difficult to deal with a country like this.”
Al Jubeir said Iran's regime was propping up the regime of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, funding Al Houthi separatists in Yemen and violent groups across the region. He said the international community needed to set clear “red lines” to halt Tehran’s actions.
