محمد خاتمي، رييس جمهوري اسلامي، در ديدار خود با امير السعود الفيصل وزير خارجه عربستان سعودي، از آنچه تهديد هاي ضد عراق خواند، ابراز نگراني كرد. خاتمي گفت: اگر پديده خطرناك دخالت كشوري قدرتمند در امور كشورهاي ديگر امري مرسوم شود، از اين پس هيچ دولت و ملتي امنيت نخواهد داشت. وي ضمنا عراق رابه رعايت قطعنامه هاي سازمان ملل متحد تشويق كرد. امروز نيز وزير امور خارجه عمان براي بحث درباره عراق و روابط دوجانبه در تهران به سر مي برد.
