US President Donald Trump’s upcoming visit to the Middle East is aimed at getting Saudi Arabia and other Arab nations in the region to stand in “unity” with Israel against Iran, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says.
Axar.az reports citing to PressTV Trump will visit Riyadh on his first foreign trip next week before visiting Tel Aviv and Vatican.
“I think there is broad view and broad consensus among all in the region, among all Arab nations, among Israel and among others of Iran’s destabilizing activities in the region,” Tillerson claimed in an interview with NBC News on Sunday.
“This has to do with standing up in unity against Iran as opposed to any particular religious overtone,” he said of Trump's trip to the region.
Trump has threatened Iran with new sanctions and possible military action on several occasions.
