Lawmaker Cautions Saudi to Stop Provocative Acts against Iran

"We believe that this provocative attitude of Saudi Arabia, which is more similar to a psychological war, is a suicidal behavior against Iran," Head of the parliament's Foreign Relations Committee Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh told FNA on Wednesday.

"We advise our Saudi brothers to avoid resorting to suicidal behaviors when dealing with Iran."

Falahatpisheh said Saudi Arabia, as the US proxy in the region, does not enjoy a strong soft power and is trying to revive its power through undermining Iran.

To this end, Riyadh strives to spread Iranophobia in the region as a policy in a bid to blame Iran for every negative event and development in the region, he continued.

The politician further warned that Riyadh's emphasis on its wrong attitude would create a serious challenge for Riyadh even without Iran's involvement.

Asked about any possible Saudi military move against Iran, Falahatpisheh questioned Saudis' capability to pose a military threat against Iran, underlining that Iran is too powerful to be harmed by such states.

Meantime, the lawmaker warned Saudis of Iran's crushing response to any potential military threat.

Tension is growing high after the Saudi military intervention in 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.

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

Iran warned Riyadh that it was "playing with fire" by deploying troops in neighboring Bahrain and that such measure will increase hate for the Saudi regime among the regional nations.

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.

Large numbers of people have lost their lives in Bahrain so far and hundreds of others have sustained injuries following the violent crackdown on the anti-government protesters.
