However, the government (Iran) does not want this, ”the diplomat said.

Iran is the most hostile country in the region, its actions indicate that it is seeking hegemony and is deeply convinced that conciliatory gestures are a sign of weakness, whether they come from his side or from opponents ”,said al-Jubeir.
