MP Calls UAE's Intervention in Bahrain "Violation of Int'l Law"

Speaking to FNA, member of the parliament's Cultural Commission Seyed Ali Hosseini reminded that interference in the other countries' affairs is unacceptable in international relations and is condemned both by the international laws and the public opinion.

He further pointed to the recent developments in the region and nations' struggle to determine their fate, and stated, "A number of countries are directly interfering in the other countries' domestic affairs, undermining the international laws."

The legislator noted Riyadh and Abu Dhabi's military deployment in Bahrain to suppress peaceful demonstrations in the tiny Persian Gulf island, and said the move discloses that "the two Arab states feel no respect for the international laws".

He urged the Iranian officials to review Tehran's ties with the UAE and Saudi Arabia, saying that such an action would be in the interest of the region and the people of Bahrain.

Hosseini, however, rejected the necessity for a full severance of Tehran's ties with Abu Dhabi for now, saying that freezing all-out ties with the UAE does not serve Tehran's interests.

On Monday, Chairman of the Iranian parliament's Foreign Relations Committee Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh stressed the Iranian parliament's resolve to review the ties with the United Arab Emirates after Abu Dhabi supported suppression of the Bahraini people and raised baseless claims against Iran at the recent Persian Gulf Cooperation Council meeting in Riyadh.

"Suppression of the revolution of the Bahraini people and the UAE's stances at the PGCC and its attempts to raise certain claims (against Iran) all show that the United Arab Emirates is distancing itself from bilateral and brotherly relations with Iran," Falahatpisheh told FNA yesterday.

In a ministerial meeting of the PGCC earlier this month, 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.

Yet, Bahrain's King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa told the same PGCC meeting that Iran is not at all involved in his country's unrests.

A source privy to the PGCC told FNA on Sunday that Sheikh Hamad, who addressed the PGCC emergency meeting as a guest, said that "Iran does not have any role in Bahrain's developments", but his statements were ignored at the session since a number of other Arab countries felt unhappy with his remarks.
