Iranian MP Raps PGCC Obedience to US

"The recent statement of the PGCC contains repetitive words that are always uttered to delight their friends and themselves," member of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Hassan Kamran told FNA on Tuesday.

"They are errand boys of the Americans," Kamran added.

The statement by the council came at the end of Sunday's extraordinary meeting of the PGCC, where Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates accused Iran of interfering in Bahrain's affairs after Tehran warned Riyadh that it was "playing with fire" by deploying troops in neighboring Bahrain.

The Iranian lawmaker rejected the allegation, and stated, "Iran has and will never interfere in the affairs of the regional countries."

He called on those sides who accuse Iran of interference in Bahrain to show the least evidence to corroborate their claims, and said these are just some baseless allegations.

The provocative and baseless accusation was leveled against Tehran after the Iranian officials warned Riyadh that it was "playing with fire" by deploying troops in neighboring Bahrain.

Bahrain, which hosts the US Navy's fifth fleet, is viewed as a very sensitive and determining factor in the power equations of the region.

While Tehran has just issued warnings and taken no action to interfere in the domestic affairs of the tiny Persian Gulf island, Saudi Arabia has embarked on dispatching troops to Bahrain, killing peaceful protestors in the country on a daily basis.

To help the Bahraini government crush the anti-government protests, Saudi Arabia has deployed more than 1,000 troops to the country at the request of Manama.

In a similar move, the UAE has dispatched around 500 police forces to the oil-rich Persian Gulf monarchy.

Bahrain's government has continued its military crackdown on anti-government protesters who demand the overthrow of the al-Khalifa dynasty on top of constitutional reforms.

Several Bahrainis have lost their lives so far and hundreds of others have sustained injuries following the violent crackdown on the anti-government protesters.
