Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir has stated that a potential war between Iran and the United States would be dangerous for everyone but blamed Tehran for increasing the tensions in the Gulf region. reports citing foreign media that if Iran continues its "aggressive policies" more sanctions will come, Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir stated in an interview.

"Today, Iran is under severe economic sanctions. These sanctions will be strengthened. If Iran continues its aggressive policies, it will have to pay the price", Adel al-Jubeir told the newspaper Le Monde.

The statement comes amid an escalation of tensions between the United States and Iran a year after Washington withdrew from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and reimposed sanctions on the Islamic Republic. The United States is planning to announce new sanctions against Iran on 24 June in the wake of Tehran downing a US drone. US President Donald Trump mentioned new restrictions on 22 June, without specifying what measures would be taken.

Before that, the US president stated that he had called off a retaliatory strike on Iranian targets after he was told that an estimated 150 Iranians could be killed as a result.
