      Tehran funds Al Qaeda leaders since the 90's. A letter from Osama Bin Laden reveals that Osama relied heavily on Iran. So, why would Saudi be in good relations with such a terrorist country? It, sure too, does not want to have relations with any country that supports such a terrorist one. Iraq’s relationship with Tehran will define its relationship with Saudi Arabia.
