MP Cautions PGCC to Revise Attitude towards Regional Developments

"Iran never interferes in the internal affairs of its neighbors and the behavior of these countries should be corrected," Rapporteur of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Kazem Jalali said on Wednesday.

Jalali called on the PGCC members to take appropriate measures to meet their people's demands instead of accusing Iran.

They are well aware of the source of their problems and they know that their dependence on the US and their fear of the Zionist regime has humiliated their nations and they know that their nations are striving to revive their lost prestige and reputation, he said.

He made the remarks in reaction to a Sunday statement of the PGCC, which came at the end of Sunday's extraordinary meeting of the council.

At the Sunday meeting, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates accused Iran of interfering in Bahrain's affairs. 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.

Jalali reiterated that the PGCC members should pay more attention to their actions and revise their improper attitude, instead of issuing emotional statements.

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, yet the PGCC ignores the Saudi military intervention.

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.
