MP: ME against Inherited Rules

“The ongoing developments in the Middle East stem from a change in the political taste of people who do not accept hereditary rules,” Head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis) Alaeddin Boroujerdi said in a Wednesday meeting in Tehran with Yutaka Iimura, the special envoy of the Japanese government for the Middle East.

He added that foreign forces should not violate the rights of nations through interference in the internal affairs of other countries.

The senior legislator denounced the West's dual policies on human rights and pointed out that Western countries, particularly the United States, are taking advantage of issues pertaining to human rights in order to violate the absolute rights of Muslim people in the region.

Boroujerdi outlined principles of Iran's foreign policy, saying, “The Islamic Republic of Iran places emphasis on the establishment of relations with friendly countries, based on mutual respect and non-interference in [one another's] internal affairs.”

He added that Iran's Majlis welcomes any effort aimed at bolstering ties between Tehran and Tokyo and stressed the importance of expanding economic and political exchanges and bolstering bilateral cooperation on reconstruction of the war-weary Afghanistan.

“It is necessary for Iran and Japan to cooperate on the fight against terrorism and other global issues, including illicit drugs,” the Iranian lawmaker went on to say.

The Japanese official said the ongoing developments in the Middle East and North Africa would affect regional and international issues and called on Tehran and Tokyo to take steps in order to reinforce regional stability.

In recent months, a wave of revolutions and anti-government uprisings has swept the Arab world.

In January, a revolution in Tunisia ended the 23-year ruling of former President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.

In February, another Arab revolution led to the ouster of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak after three decades of his authoritarian rule.

Other revolutions have erupted in Libya, Yemen and Bahrain, while other anti-government unrests have swept Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman, Kuwait and Algeria.
