Iran: Silence of Western countries over Saudi Arabia's mass execution reflects hypocrisy
The Iranian Foreign Ministry condemned Saudi Arabia's execution of 81 people, including 7 Yemenis and a Syrian, accusing them of violating all principles of international law.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry considered the execution of dozens of people in Saudi Arabia yesterday an "inhumane act that contradicts the principles of international law."
In a statement, the Iranian Foreign Ministry condemned the silence of Western countries regarding the mass executions in Saudi Arabia, and considered them a "sign of hypocrisy."
Sources close to the Iranian Supreme National Security Council announced a temporary suspension of talks between Iran and Riyadh, against the background of the executions, according to Tasnim news agency.
Yesterday, the Saudi authorities executed 81 citizens and residents, claiming that they were "involved in terrorist acts inside the Kingdom."
Moreover, the Saudi Press Agency said that Riyadh executed 81 men, including seven Yemenis and a Syrian, after "sentences related to terrorism," while Saudi opposition media reported that the local authorities "committed an execution crime against 40 detainees from the people of Qatif, all at once."
