Majlis Calls for Saudi Troop Pullout from Bahrain

The National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Majlis in a statement issued on Thursday warned the government in Riyadh not to “play with fire” in the Persian Gulf and advised Saudis to pull their forces out of Bahrain. 

The statement released in the wake of the ongoing uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa, urged Saudi Arabia “not to pursue the wrong polices of the US in the region and consider its own interests as well as the interests of the Muslim world.” It advised Riyadh to withdrawn its troops from Bahrain in a bid to help restore tranquility and security to the region.

Current developments in the region are to change the path of history and would create more complicated problems which will not be to the benefit of the US and its allies who have mobilized themselves, said the statement. Instead, the statement added, these are the nations who will change equations to their benefit in regional developments,.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates which have dispatched troops to Bahrain have made the issue more complicated and created a situation similar to occupation of Kuwait by Saddam Hussein, said the statement.

“Occupation is occupation and the oppressed people in Bahrain will denounce it forever and this will further encourage them in their struggles with the occupiers,” said the statement.

Iran has already warned against Saudi invasion of Bahrain, saying any “ill-advised” move would be detrimental to nations in the region.

Iran's Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said earlier this month that such measures will mount tension and undermine stability and security in the region.

Demonstrators in the Shia-majority Bahrain have been demanding constitutional reforms as well as an end to the 230-year-old Sunni-led monarchy, with hundreds camping out peacefully in the capital's Pearl Square since February 14th.

Bahraini security forces have been brutally suppressing anti-government protesters. So far, at least 24 people have been killed, almost 100 have gone missing and about 1,000 others have been injured.

The violence against protesters escalated when Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar dispatched their armed forces to the country upon Manama's request to help with the crackdown on peaceful protesters.
