MENA Uprisings Fruit of Rulers Ignorance

Ramin Mehmanparast made the remarks in response to a jointed statement at the end of an annual ministerial meeting of the European Union and the [Persian] Gulf Cooperation Council, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said in a Friday media release.

"Iran should reconsider its policies in the region," UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahayan, whose country holds the rotating presidency of the [P]GCCl, told a news conference in Abu Dhabi, urging Tehran to "respect the unity and sovereignty of [Persian] Gulf countries.”

Mehmanparast ruled out the allegation and recalled the Saudi-backed military intervention against Bahraini protesters and the crackdown on anti-regime demonstrators in the Persian Gulf state.

“Muslim countries are expected to exhaust their capacities to confront invasions and threats by the Zionist regime [of Israel] and the enemies of Islam,” the foreign ministry statement quoted him as saying.

“The reality is, to acquit themselves, these countries have chosen a 'forward escape,' have projected and accuse those who have not interfered in the recent developments and only morally supported the legitimate and peaceful demands of the people,” the spokesman added.

“Does your silence on these crimes not indicate your support for the ongoing situation and [the adoption of] a double standard policy towards human rights?” Mehmanparast questioned European countries.

“Does the invasion and military intervention in Libya -- which instead of stopping clashes and preventing the killing of innocents inflicts serious harm on civilians -- not count as interference in this country?”

The official further reiterated that the Islamic Republic, as a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency and a committed signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty has an “inalienable right” to peaceful nuclear technology.

Mehmanparast criticized the worn-out discussion of Iran's nuclear activity in the EU-[P]GCC meeting as an attempt to distract the world's attention from the crimes committed against humanity in the region.
