Iran’s President lashed out at Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, calling its decision to sever ties with Tehran after uproar over a prominent Shiite cleric’s execution a strange move in response to what he called justified criticism.
“Undoubtedly, such moves will never hide that great crime,” President Hassan Rouhani said, according to Iran’s state-run Press TV.
Saturday’s execution of cleric Nimr al-Nimr and 46 others in a single day on terrorism charges has stirred a vigorous reaction in the Middle East and beyond. Many countries have taken sides, along sectarian lines — with predominantly Shiite nations like Iran condemning it, while those with mostly Sunni Muslims standing behind Saudi Arabia.
