US authorities said on Tuesday they had broken up a plot by two men linked to Iran’s security agencies to kill the Saudi envoy, Adel al-Jubeir. One man was arrested last month while the other was believed to be in Iran.

“We believe that our neighbours in the region are very well aware that America is using this story to ruin our relationship with Saudi Arabia.”
