The secretary of commerce expressed surprise - and approval - at the lack of visible protests during President Donald Trump's visit to Saudi Arabia, despite the ruling monarchy's repression of demonstrations. There was a George W Bush moment too when Mr Trump referred to the battle between good and evil.
He called on the Middle-eastern countries to combat Islamic extremism, pointing out that "95 per cent of the victims of terrorist attacks are themselves Muslims".
B'nai B'rith in a statement issued Sunday evening praised Trump for calling on Arab nations to join in the fight against Islamic terrorism and for "challenging the Arab world to unite in confronting Iran - the largest state sponsor of global terror".
Without naming Pakistan, Trump said "every country must ensure that terrorists do not find any sanctuary on their lands".
Trump's Saudi hosts are likely pleased there was no confrontation with Islam but critics have accused Saudi Arabia and other Arab states of not always prioritizing the fight against Sunni Islamic terrorism over battling Iran.
"This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects or different civilizations", Trump said.Читайте также: New Sonic Mania Trailer: Release Date Announced!
Meanwhile, Tillerson also said Monday that Trump's views on Islam "continue to evolve".
During his visit to Saudi Arabia, Trump called on the regional countries to isolate Iran, which had "fuelled the fires of sectarian conflict and terror". "Drive out the extremists", Trump continued, "Drive them out of your places of worship". Drive them out of your community. "Drive them out of your holy land and drive them out of this Earth", he said.
As part of the agreement, the Saudi Kingdom signed billion-dollar investment agreements with USA companies General Electric and Blackstone Investment. "People that want to protect life and want to protect their religion".
In his tweet today, Zarif said that the United States may be "milking" Saudi Arabia of Dollars 480 billion after Washington signed major deals with Tehran's Gulf rival.
"Today, the stable Iran is seeking stability in the entire region because it knows that achieving security at home at the expense of insecurity among neighbors is basically impossible", he added.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
