Jubeir also said this summit with US is going to “open a new page” in terms of western countries’ dialogue with Muslim countries.
He also said that Saudi Arabia wants to send a message to the West that the Muslim countries are “not enemies,” adding that the Riyadh comes second after the United States in the fight against IS militant group.
“We will work with our allies, particularly US, to see that Iran is made to act like a normal country,” Jubeir said.
“As long as Iran threatens with terrorism, it is impossible to have normal relations with them.”
