RNS - The Iranian former deputy foreign minister made the remarks on Sunday in a meeting with the members of the Arab and Islamic Gathering Forum on Supporting the Resistance.
Saying that the American-Zionist alliance is trying to weaken the Axis of Resistance, Amir Abdollahian asserted that the Zionist regime does not dare to wage a new war in the region.
He then lashed out at the US policies in the region and the world and said that the Americans’ main tool to confront the Resistance and the Islamic Republic of Iran has been threats, sanctions, political pressure, and psychological and propaganda warfare.
"Some of the conflicts in the region have been created in line with" the goal "to bring the so-called Deal of the Century to a conclusion".
He described US President Donald Trump as an arrogant businessman who "in secret promises the collapse of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the Arab states, while he threatens Iran with war and wages a propaganda and psychological warfare against it."
According to Press TV, he further noted "but in practice he [Trump] pushes for and insist on talks [with Iran.]”
The members of the Arab and Islamic Gathering Forum on Supporting the Resistance, in turn, expressed their appreciation to the Islamic Republic of Iran for its support for the Resistance Axis and called on the Islamic and Arab countries to be united in the face of Zionists’ plots in the region.
Back in early June, the Syrian Army troops discovered an explosive workshop and Saudi chemical materials in a then recently-liberated region in Southern Damascus. A large volume of powerful explosives made by a Saudi company was found in the workshop. The regions were newly evacuated by Jeish al-Islam and al-Nusra terrorist groups.
The commander of the units carrying out the cleansing operation told the media that the "footprint of Saudi Arabia and Turkey can readily be traced in all the data-x-items found in the region".
Also in a related front, the Arabic-language al-Baladi news website reported in late May that the Democratic Union Party (PYD) along with al-Sanadid Forces are recruiting to form the Border Guard Force in the town of al-Ya'arabiyeh near Syria's border with Iraq, adding that the Saudis have been backing the PYD's plan to do so.
