Saudi ambassador to Lebanon: Iran cannot wage direct war on the countries of the region
The Saudi ambassador to Lebanon, Ali Awad Al-Asiri, dismissed the possibility of Iran launching a direct attack on the region’s countries, particularly the Gulf States.
In an interview with “The Other Dimension,” he stated that if Iran goes to war, its poor economy will collapse.
He also ruled out using nuclear weapons, even if it acquired them one day, since it understands the repercussions of doing so, noting out that India and Pakistan both have nuclear capability but have not used them in their respective battles.
Concerning the balance of military forces, Al-Asiri stated that Iran’s weaponry are locally manufactured, but the Gulf States’ armaments are Western, sophisticated, and modern.
The Saudi envoy also emphasised Iran’s detrimental policies in a number of nations, including Lebanon, Syria, and Yemen. He stated that while Iran’s tactics have evolved, its objective remains the same: to exploit Shiite populations in Arab countries.
Concerning the Iranian regime’s issue, Ambassador Al-Asiri stated that the next battle in Iran may be between the Revolutionary Guards and Khamenei’s faction.
