    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.
