West Plays Blame Game on Iran: MP

Western countries accuse Iran of interfering in the region in a bid to place blame for the ongoing regional developments on other countries, a senior Iranian lawmaker says.

“Western countries could never imagine that those who save their interests in regional countries might ever stop supporting them and their stooges would fall one after the other,” Deputy Chairman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis) Hossein Ebrahimi said on Tuesday.

“In these conditions, global arrogance shifts the blame on others and accuses Iran of interfering in the internal affairs of regional countries,” he added.

He warned against enemy plots to suggest that there is tension in the country and said only a united Iran could confront the Western propaganda campaign.

Iran has categorically rejected accusations of interference in regional countries, reiterating that it pursues a non-interference policy.

“Iran, based on its foreign policy, does not interfere in the internal affairs of other countries and has been committed to this principle up to now,” Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said at a conference on the developments in the Middle East and North Africa on Saturday.

He said that certain countries in the region, along with "global arrogance," play the blame game by accusing Iran of interfering in the region without offering any evidence.

The Iranian minister, however, said that the Islamic Republic respects the sovereignty of all regional countries.

Anti-government demonstrations have been going on in the Middle East and North Africa after a wave of Islamic awakening in the region.

The Egyptians launched a revolution against the previous pro-Israeli regime in January, which eventually put an end to the 30-year-long rule of former President Hosni Mubarak.

Protests have also been held in the Yemeni capital, Sana'a, as well as the cities of Aden and Taizz, calling for the removal of President Ali Abdullah Saleh from power and the tackling of corruption and unemployment.

In Libya, revolutionaries have been fighting to depose Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi since the middle of February.

In Bahrain too, people have been holding anti-government protests since February 14, demanding constitutional reforms as well as an end to the Al-Khalifa monarchy.
