Jan. 31 (Bloomberg) -- A Saudi Arabian delegation walked out of a conference in protest after a former Iranian parliament speaker criticized the kingdom’s policies, the state-run Mehr news agency reported without citing anyone.

Former Parliamentary Speaker Ali Akbar Nateq Nouri said the birth place of Islam had strayed from its principles of justice and become a place of oppression and inequality in less than 100 years, Mehr said in a report published yesterday.

Nateq Nouri made the comments during a speech at a conference of the Parliamentary Union of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in Palembang, Indonesia yesterday, Mehr said.
