Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says Saudi Arabia’s “unwise” and “provocative” policies will further heighten tensions in the Middle East region.

In a meeting with visiting Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim Jaafari on Wednesday, President Rouhani once again denounced Riyadh’s recent move to execute top Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr Baqir al-Nimr, saying the move was aimed at sowing discord in the region.

“Today, in circumstances under which we need, more than ever, unity and unification among countries to fight terrorism in the region, [such] unwise, hasty and provocative decisions will definitely lead to the escalation of tensions and will be to the detriment of countries in the region,” Rouhani said.
