Ahmad Khatami one of Tehran’s Friday prayer leaders reacted angrily and tumultuously to the recent comments by the Saudi FM. During a Friday prayer sermon in Tehran, Ahmad Khatami laid out a series of abusive and insulting words against Saudi FM Saud al-Faisal calling his comments lies and absurd. Khatami said: "Saudi FM says Iran is part of the problem, not the solution. It is strange; they are attacking so they wouldn’t be attacked, strange!"
He then continued to label the Saudi’s as ’part of the problem’ and accused them of spending billions of dollars to overthrow Bashar Assad.
The Saudi FM in a joint news conference with his German counterpart on Wednesday accused Iranian regime of ’occupier of Syria’ which ’would only add to the crisis in Syria and the region’ and called on the regime to pull out its forces from Syria. Saud al-Faisal said "Iran in much of the regional turmoil is part of the problem, not the solution."
