Iran Urges Foreign Pull-Out from Bahrain

Larijani made the remarks in Monday meeting with Ahmad Chalabi, Head of Iraqi National Congress Party.

He further pointed out that paying attention to the demands of the Bahrainis and retreating of foreign forces from the Middle Eastern country were the only solutions to the Bahrain crisis.

“International powers don't have a proper understanding of the situation in Bahrain. The persistence of such conditions will be to their own detriment,” Larijani noted.

The top Iranian diplomat also praised the Iraqi groups' support of the Bahrainis.

Chalabai, for his part, said the Iraqi nation could not remain silent on the suppression of the Bahraini people.

He went on to say that certain regional countries, afraid of possible popular uprisings in their own countries, were flaming the fan of crisis by interfering in troubled Bahrain.

Larijani also met with Iraqi Vice President Adel Abdul-Mahdi on the same day.

In the meeting, Larijani praised regional revolutions. He also warned Western powers and certain regional countries that “playing with the feelings” of Bahraini people could have harmful consequences.

Abdul-Mahdi, for his turn, said that international powers sought to derail the popular movements in the region and called for Muslims' vigilance in the face of such plots.

He also praised Iran's support of the Iraqi government and nation as well as the establishment of security in his country.

Larijani also met with former Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari on Monday, during which both officials discussed the ongoing regional developments.

People in Bahrain have been holding anti-government protests since February 14, demanding constitutional reforms as well as an end to the al-Khalifa monarchy.

Demonstrators maintain that they will continue the protests until their demands for freedom, constitutional monarchy, and a proportional voice in the government are met.

The peaceful popular movement in Bahrain has been violently repressed since mid-February, leaving scores of anti-regime protesters killed and many others missing.

To help the Bahraini government crush the anti-government protests, neighboring Arab states of Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Kuwait have deployed their troops to Bahrain.
