Speaker Warns against Deteriorating Situation in Bahrain

"The current conditions in Bahrain increase cruelties and oppressions against the people of the country," Larijani said at the beginning of the last open session of the parliament in the current Iranian year (ending March 20).

He also reiterated that the status quo in Bahrain after the military intervention of the US and certain regional countries has become a source of increased sensitivity for the Iranian parliamentarians, making them to discuss the issue in a closed-door session on this morning.

His remarks came after Saudi Arabia sent more than 1,000 Saudi soldiers into Bahrain amidst widespread antigovernment protests.

The Saudi military forces in tanks and armored personnel carriers crossed the 16-mile causeway into the tiny island kingdom of Bahrain.

Wednesday report from the Bahraini capital city of Manama said that the Saudi forces have shot dead over 7 people during the latest round of protests in the Arab Persian Gulf monarchy.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry on Tuesday summoned the Swiss and Saudi ambassadors to Tehran to protest at Riyadh's military intervention in Bahrain and Washington's support for the move.

Switzerland takes care of the US interests in Iran in absence of diplomatic ties.

The United States, which has its Fifth Fleet based in tiny Arab Persian Gulf monarchy, has declined to call the Saudi troops' deployment in Bahrain as incursion and has voiced support for the Riyadh's military intervention in the internal affairs of Bahrain.

The Islamic Republic also summoned Bahrain's charge d'affaires in Tehran over the recent developments.
