"In this regard, we are even ready to forgive their past mistakes, because today we are faced with conditions in which the enemies of the region, particularly the U.S., the arrogance and the Zionism, are seeking to exploit the gap, rift, and division among the regional countries", the president said.

Rouhani said the plan - details of which he will present at the United Nations - is not limited to "security" but also encompasses economic co-operation and an initiative for "long-term" peace.

Saudi Arabia will seek to make a case at a global gathering in NY this week for concerted action to punish and deter archfoe Iran after strikes on Saudi oil plants rattled global markets and exposed the kingdom's vulnerability to attack.

Iran has denied any involvement.

But in response to a recent decision by the United States to send more troops to the area, Rouhani went on to warn against the presence of foreign forces in the Gulf.

Saudi state oil firm Aramco has told Japanese refiner JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy about a possible change in shipment, raising concern about the kingdom's ability to supply crude oil a week after attacks on its refineries, the Nikkei Asian Review reported.

"We hold Iran responsible because the missiles and the drones that were fired at Saudi Arabia. were Iranian-built and Iranian-delivered", Jubeir told CNN late Saturday.

Jean-Yves Le Drian, France's foreign minister, said on Sunday that his country's main aim at the General Assembly meeting is to de-escalate tensions between the United States and Iran, and that a meeting between Trump and Rouhani was not the top priority.

Netanyahu, Gantz deadlocked with almost all votes counted: Israel media
The Joint List has even offered to join in a Blue and White-led coalition government, but Gantz has rejected this. "The era of Netanyahu is over", claimed one opposition lawmaker as exit polls emerged Tuesday night.

Saudi Arabia said it would be forming a united front at the United Nations General Assembly in NY next week against Iran.

'And we will be working with our American friends and our European friends to construct a response that tries to deescalate tensions in the Gulf region'.

Trump and (Iranian) President (Hassan) Rouhani is not the number one subject.

Shortly before leaving for the United Nations meetings Monday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that his country will invite "all littoral states of the Persian Gulf" to join an Iranian-led coalition "to guarantee the region's security". "We will consider in what way we could be useful, if asked, depending on what the exact plan is".

This year has seen continuing tension between the United States and Iran, following President Donald Trump's abandonment of a deal aimed at limiting Iran's nuclear activities in return for the easing of sanctions.

"What we want is that these events and actions are documented and then the global community will be within its right to ask for explanations".

The kingdom has managed to recover supplies to customers to the levels they were at prior to the attacks by drawing from its huge oil inventories and offering other crude grades from other fields, Saudi officials said.

The attacks in Saudi Arabia have deepened a crisis that has escalated since US President Donald Trump withdrew from the a multilateral nuclear deal signed in 2015 between Iran and world powers.
