Riyadh, Muharram 27, 1439, Oct 17, 2017, SPA -- Saudi newspapers highlighted in their editorials today a number of issues at local, regional and international arenas.
In its editorial entitled "Decisive Strategy against Iranian Terrorism", Al-Yaum newspaper said that the Kingdom has repeatedly called for the importance of developing an appropriate and decisive strategy to confront the Iranian terrorist tide, citing the telephone call made recently by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud supporting this strategy announced by US President Donald Trump to confront Iran's aggressive activities and support for terrorism in the region and the world in a way that endangers the safety and security of all human communities without exception.
It said, " The Iranian regime by exporting its terrorist revolution to a number of countries in the region represents the first sponsor of the phenomenon of terrorism and extremism which must be confronted through an international strategic organization to curb its expansion to the countries of the region and the world."
In its editorial entitled "Qatar, Slap after Another", Okaz newspaper said that Qatar believes that everything can be bought with its petrodollars, but this year, Qatar suffers several disappointments whenever it tries to pass its ugly theory.
Okaz continued that Qatar tried to go to international organizations to complain the quartet boycotted it because of its interference and support for terrorism and its financing in addition to its bribes and corruption scandals in international football sports.
Okaz concluded that the failure of the Qatari candidate to head UNESCO was also a powerful diplomatic and political blow to Qatar's regime by the international community where it tried to pretend that it would be an active member in the international community, while continuing to make conspiracies and destabilize states and their security.
