"Stop supporting terrorism, interfering in the politics of chaos, destruction and the internal affairs of Arab countries. Stop the development of weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs. Act like a Normal state, not like a rebel state supporting terrorism. Saudi Arabia has not and will not talk to Iran about Yemen. Yemen is the work of all Yemenis. The cause of the Yemen crisis is Iran's role. In Iran, the last thing this regime wants in Yemen is peace and tranquility."
