Iran has decided to ban all product from Saudi Arabia after the two countries severed diplomatic relations.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Iran has imposed a full embargo against Saudi Arabia on all deliveries of products after the two countries severed diplomatic relations, Press TV reported on Thursday.

“Iran prohibits [the imports] of all products from Saudi Arabia after severing relations,” according to a statement published on the broadcaster’s Twitter account.

​On January 2, Riyadh executed top Shiite cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, inciting a response in Tehran, where the Saudi embassy was stormed by protestors. On Monday, Saudi Arabia formerly severed diplomatic ties with Iran.
