Iran and Saudi Arabia stressed that the two sides’ dialogue and effective cooperation is the best way to get out of the problems and reach collective security.

Performing body search on passengers at the King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah back in April, the two Saudi officers, reportedly sounded off the alarm at the gate, took the Iranian teenagers — aged 14 and 15 — away and subjected them to indecent acts.
