Saudi Arabia Blocks Iran From OIC Meeting Over Middle East Peace Plan

Saudi Arabia has blocked an Iranian delegation from an OIC Meeting in Jeddah on Monday where US President Donald Trump’s  Middle East peace plan is expected to be discussed, the Iranian foreign ministry said.

US’ ‘Deal of the Century’ between Israel & Palestine Bound to Fail: Russia

“The government of Saudi Arabia has prevented the participation of the Iranian delegation in the meeting to examine the ‘deal of the century’ plan at the headquarters of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation,” ministry spokesperson Abbas Mousavi said, according to Fars news agency.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump on Tuesday unveiled what he termed as ‘Deal of the Century’ with Isreali counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu. The deal is aimed at solving the long-standing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The plan was warmly welcomed by Israel’s prime minister, who called it a “historic day” for the Jewish state. The plan, Trump said, proposes a four-year freeze of Israeli development in the area eyed for a future Palestinian state.

Iran denounced Donald Trump’s so-called “Deal of the century” and instead termed it as a “treason of the century.”

“The Zionist regime is an occupying regime and the only solution to solve the Palestinian crisis is a referendum among all main residents of the Palestinian land and such vicious plans are doomed to failure,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi had stated. Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif also dismissed the US president’s “delusional” plan, stressing that it will be “dead on arrival.”
