MP Urges PGCC to Stop Blaming Iran

In a statement on Sunday, the council accused Iran of interfering in the internal affairs of Persian Gulf states.

“The [P]GCC should not put the blame for the ongoing developments in Bahrain on Iran. The Islamic Republic seeks peace in the region,” Head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis) Alaeddin Boroujerdi told IRNA on Monday.

“Iran's policy on Arab countries in the Persian Gulf has not changed and we still believe in good relations with these states,” he added.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran is the most influential country in the region which tightens regional security and has played a valuable role in defusing crisis and establishing security,” he reiterated.

Boroujerdi emphasized that Iran is trying to end the ongoing crisis in Bahrain and maintain the independence of a member country of the Organization of the Islamic Conference and the United Nations.

The Iranian lawmaker rejected the PGCC claims and noted that the council's statement has put the blame for Saudi Arabia's “historic mistake” of deploying troops into Bahrain on Tehran.

He said an attack on a small country like Bahrain and the killing of innocent people do not display military might but are an indication of the weakness of a country which claims to serve the interests of Muslim nations.

“The Saudi Arabia is expected to display its power against the Zionist regime's (Israel) crimes against defenseless Palestinian people,” Boroujerdi pointed out.

People in Bahrain have been protesting since February 14, demanding an end to the rule of the Al Khalifa dynasty.

Demonstrators maintain that they will hold their ground until their demands for freedom, constitutional monarchy as well as a proportional voice in the government are met.

In March, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait deployed their troops in Bahrain to reinforce the brutal armed clampdown against mass protests.

Scores of Bahraini protesters have been killed and many others gone missing in the harsh crackdown since the beginning of the revolution in the Middle Eastern country.
