According to Xinhua, Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that Tehran has information on Saudi's support to terrorists groups in its eastern and western borders.

"You [the United States] and your agents are the source of instability in the Middle East.who created [Daesh]?"

"America is a terrorist country and backs terrorism... therefore, we can not normalize ties with such a country", Khamenei said.

Simultaneously, the Saudi foreign minister tweeted, "Iran must be punished for its interference, support for terrorism in region".

Speaking alongside his Norwegian counterpart Børge Brende in Oslo on Monday, Zarif called out Washington for failing to deliver on the deal, hailing the milestone agreement between Iran, US and five other world powers as "an important achievement for the global community in reducing tension and preventing an unnecessary crisis from taking a toll on peace and security".

During a meeting with Annan in Oslo, Zarif pointed to the pressures imposed on Qatar by Saudi Arabia.

The Iranian side expressed pleasure for bolstering trade relations with the European states, including Slovakia, and expressed the hope that banking and insurance cooperation would be expanded in the near future.

"The claim of forming a coalition against Daesh is a lie; of course, Americans are against 'an uncontained Daesh, ' but if anyone would want to truly destroy Daesh, they [Americans] will counter them", he said, using an Arabic acronym for the group.

A terrorist attack claimed by ISIS on Iran last week killed at least 17 people.

He added: "The US must know that the Islamic Republic will not back down from positions such as battling oppression and defending Palestine and will spare no efforts towards defending the people's rights".
