Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubair said on Thursday that his country did not want war with Iran in the latest Saudi position.
"Saudi Arabia does not want war with Iran , but it will not tolerate what it sees as a hostile Iranian activity in the region, " al-Jubair told the BBC in an interview .
Al-Jubeir's speech comes ahead of two emergency meetings, called by Saudi King Salman bin Abdul Aziz, in Mecca to discuss rising tension in the Gulf region.
The Saudi minister of state described the two meetings, an Arab summit and a Gulf one, as "a big statement" to Iran .
Answering a question about Iran's recent offer to dialogue with its neighbors, al-Jubair said this was the time to move, not talk. Ending / 25
