Saudi State Minister for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir urged on Sunday the international community to deter Iran in wake of its repeated violations.

“Any violation of international marine navigation is a violation of international law,” he said in a tweet.

He added that Tehran is aware that its actions and behavior, including the interception of civilian vessels and seizure of the British tanker in the Arabian Gulf, violate international law.

Jubeir held separate talks in Riyadh with American Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, John Abizaid, and Russian Ambassador Seregi Kozlov.

Discussions focused on bilateral relations and cooperation and the latest regional and international developments.
