Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir said Friday that Iran threatens the entire region and its aggression can no longer be tolerated.

"We support the maximum pressure campaign” on Iran, Jubeir told the Mediterranean Dialogues Conference held in Rome.

He stressed that Iran must be deprived of the tools that threaten the region and the world.

Jubeir said there is a possibility of calming the situation in Yemen as a prelude to reaching a settlement in the conflict.

"There is a possibility to calm down the situation that will be followed by a settlement in Yemen," he told the conference.

The Saudi Foreign Ministry said that Jubeir held talks with Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio on the sidelines of the conference.

They “reviewed bilateral relations between the two countries and discussed regional and international developments,” it said.
