Larijani Raps World Powers' "Hypocritical" Stances on Regional Developments

Larijani made the remarks in a meeting with former Iraqi Prime Minister and current Leader of the Iraqi Shiites Coalition Ibrahim Al-Jaafari here in Tehran on Monday evening.

Also during the meeting, the Iranian speaker stressed, "All opportunities should be used to defend the popular moves in the region."

During the meeting, Al-Jaafari referred to the developments in Bahrain, and said, "The Muslim Bahraini nation is in a new stage of its political-social life and prospects of the current conditions in this country are good and bright."

He called on all Muslim nations of the world to pay attention to the sufferings of the Bahraini people and stop the al-Khalifa regime from continuing suppression of the people in the tiny Persian Gulf country.

Bahraini security forces have been brutally suppressing anti-government protesters. So far, tens of people have been killed, hundreds of people have gone missing and thousands of others have been injured.

Demonstrators in Bahrain have been demanding constitutional reforms as well as an end to the 230-year-old monarchy, with hundreds camping out peacefully in the capital's Pearl Square since February 14.

Yet, tension has grown 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 over 1,000 troops in the country.
