Iran's Supreme Leader: Saudi Arabia 'cow milked' by US

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei launched a fierce attack against regional rival Saudi Arabia, saying it was being pumped "like a milking cow" by "infidel" Americans.

Khamenei on May 27 said the Saudis were "idiots [who] believe that they can win the friendship of the enemies of Islam with money", Iran's semi-official Fars news agency reported.

"They act cordially toward the enemies of Islam while having the opposite behavior toward the Muslim people of Bahrain and Yemen", Khamenei told a religious gathering marking the start of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, as reported by his Twitter account.
