MP: PGCC Seeking to Divert Public Opinion from Realities of Bahrain

In their latest statement the Persian Gulf Arab states have called on the international community and the UN Security Council (UNSC) to take the necessary measures to stop what they claimed to be Iran's "provocative interference" in the domestic affairs of their countries.

In reply, Nasrollah Torabi told FNA that the council is seeking to project the blame on Iran.

"The Persian Gulf Cooperation Council has tried to portray the differences and the conflict in Bahrain as a sectarian strife and introduced Iran as a terrorist country that interferes in the other country's affairs and has filed a complaint against Iran in the international circles in a bid to divert the public opinion," Torabi stated.

He strong rejected the allegations, and reiterated, "Iran's role in these disputes is (limited to) confrontation with a government that doesn't respect others' rights."

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 reform and 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.
