Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal on Wednesday expressed concerns about what he said was a "confrontation in the making" between Iran and the West, saying it was the last thing the troubled region needs. Saber-rattling on the part of the United States and other Western nations in the face of Iran's refusal to halt uranium enrichment has further unnerved the Shiite country's predominantly Sunni neighbors. Arab countries are already concerned that Iran's growing influence in the Shiite-led Iraqi government will embolden their own Shiite communities, causing even more instability in a region where peace has been the stuff of dreams for decades. Based on his conversations with US officials and others, al-Faisal said that "what we are seeing is a confrontation in the making."
