Rouhani urges Saudi Arabia to stop "hostilities" towards Iran

Arrested Saudi Princes Businessmen Reportedly Kept In Ritz Carlton Hotel

During a press conference Tuesday, spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the U.S.is encouraging authorities in Saudi Arabia to pursue the prosecution of corrupted officials.

In seizing vast executive powers, as in this weekend's sweeping arrest of royals and officials, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman is undoing the last of those checks and balances - princely economic and security fiefdoms that acted as countervailing influences. But Trump instead criticized Qatar for alleged financing of extremist groups and praised the Saudis for making attempts to halt extremist financing.

"I want them to strongly consider the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) or NASDAQ, or frankly anybody else located in this country", Trump said.

"While Saudi media are framing these measures as Mohammed bin Salman's move against corruption, the mass arrests suggest this may be more about internal power politics", she said. "People more powerful than you have been unable to do anything against the Iranian people", Rouhani said at a cabinet meeting in remarks aimed at Saudi leaders.

The White House said at the time the trip was reported that it was within the context of Kushner's efforts on Israeli-Palestinian peace conversations.

Since Hadi left Yemen in February, he has repeatedly sent written requests to Saudi King Salman asking to return home.

"Saudi Arabia's announcement confirms once again the Iranian regime's complete disregard for its international obligations".

Eleven princes, including billionaire businessman Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, as well as dozens of current and former ministers, were detained on Sunday. That recalled a palace coup in June that ousted Mohammed bin Nayef as heir to the throne.

"There's no crisis that diplomacy can't resolve".

A number of those held most recently include individuals with links to the immediate family of late Prince Sultan Abdulaziz, the Crown Prince and Defence Minister who died in 2011, the sources said.

Iran supports the Houthis but has denied arming them. The ban was prompted by the bitter enmity between Hadi and the United Arab Emirates, a key coalition member, they said, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject. Tehran denies the allegations.

In addition, the US is now viewed as the supplier of extra oil at the margin, accounting for more than 50% of extra barrels coming from non-Opec countries between now and 2020, according to the International Energy Agency's medium-term forecasts.

- U.S. accuses Iran of violating two UN resolutions by supplying weapons to Houthi fighters.

The coalition announced the closure of all ports in Yemen as of Monday.

Rouhani was apparently commenting on Riyadh's Monday statement claiming Iran was responsible for the attack that involved a ballistic missile launched from Yemen.
