TEHRAN, Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- Iran rejected the Saudi Arabian interior minister's remarks over the bilateral relations as " baseless," the English language satellite Press TV reported on Wednesday.

According to an unnamed source in Iran's Foreign Ministry, Iran rejected as baseless the remarks made by Saudi Interior Minister Prince Nayef bin Aziz that the Islamic Republic is targeting his country, noting that the security issues of the two countries are interrelated and Iran seeks peace and stability in the Kingdom, said Press TV.

Nayef said Monday that terrorism remains a threat to Saudi Arabia and accused Iran of targeting it, according to the Middle East North Africa Financial Network.

"We are still the target of terrorists who will continue attempting attack us, supported by other parties," Al-Eqtissadiya newspaper quoted Nayef as saying.

"Evil surrounds us from all sides," he said, citing unrest in neighboring Iraq and Yemen, as well as "Iran and its targeting of the kingdom," said the report without further elaboration.
