Oman's Ambassador to Tehran Saud bin Ahmad al-Bardani criticized Saudi Arabia for severing relations with Iran, Fars News reported.
"Regardless of its cause, this has definitely been an unwise action conducted through an incorrect method," Bardani said in a meeting with Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani in Tehran on Monday, referring to Riyadh's severance of diplomatic ties with Iran.
"I believe Saudi Arabia, through its recent measure, is after pressuring Iran and overshadowing the nuclear agreement (between Tehran and the world powers)," he added.
Bardani referred to the critical situation in the regional states, including Syria, Iraq and Yemen, and said, "In the current conditions, we need tranquility in the region instead of exacerbation of the crises."
His remarks came after Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir announced on Sunday that the country had cut off diplomatic ties with Iran.
