"We have a common challenge, which is Iran, and I think they all recognize it, and we hope they will resolve their dispute in their own way", said Pompeo.

"The US secretary of state's remarks on the presence and role of the Islamic Republic of Iran in certain countries in the region are a repetition of absurd and unfounded accusations", Iran's foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghassemi said in a statement Monday. It is an arms dealer to the Houthi rebels in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt severed diplomatic and transport links with Qatar on June 5, accusing the country of supporting Sunni extremist groups and Iranian-backed Shiite militants.

In Riyadh yesterday Mr Pompeo reiterated President Trump's threat to terminate the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran.

"What is said erroneously with regard to Yemen is false, only aimed at deflecting the attention of the worldwide public opinion from the crimes being committed daily by Saudi Arabia in its aggression against the country", he said. "It is just a worthless claim geared to the perpetuation of Saudi Arabia's warmongering, its aggression against Yemen, and the destructive and destabilising presence of foreign powers in the region".
