Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Araif responded to "allegations and counter-positions of Iran" launched by US President Donald Trump during the Riyadh summit on Sunday.
"Iran, which has just completed real elections, is being attacked by the US president from that base for democracy and moderation," he wrote in a commentary posted on his personal Twitter page.
"Is this attack in the framework of foreign policy or just to pour $ 480 billion from Saudi Arabia?" He asked.
US President Donald Trump, in a speech to leaders and representatives of 55 countries at the Arab-American Islamic Summit held in the Saudi capital Riyadh, called for joint action to isolate Iran and put Hezbollah on the terrorism list.
Trump blamed the Iranian authorities for the instability in the entire Middle East. "Iran has trained and armed militias in the region and for decades has been raising slogans of death for the United States and Israel and interfering in Syria," he said.
Trump said that the Iranian regime is the main financier of international terrorism, noting that it "feeds hatred" throughout the Middle East, especially in Syria.
Saudi Arabia and the United States signed $ 480 billion worth of economic and recreational contracts on Saturday during US President Donald Trump's visit to Riyadh.
