Iran FM Has No Plan to Visit S Arabia

“Under the present circumstances, no plan has been drawn up for our country's foreign minister to travel to Saudi Arabia,” IRNA quoted an unnamed Foreign Ministry official as saying on Tuesday.

The source, however, stressed that the promotion of ties and cooperation with all regional nations were among the topmost priorities in Islamic Republic's foreign affairs policy.

On Sunday, Salehi visited Abu Dhabi and held talks with UAE Prime Minister Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and his Emirati counterpart, Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

Last week, Salehi made a one-day visit to Qatar, where he discussed regional developments and bilateral ties with Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, Crown Prince Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabor Al Thani.

Salehi also visited the Omani capital of Muscat last Wednesday for a formal day-long visit, and held talks with senior Omani officials, including Omani Sultan Qaboos bin Said al-Saidon.

Tehran has repeatedly condemned the Saudi invasion of Bahrain along with armies from some neighboring Arab states to help Manama quash popular protests in the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom.

The Iranian people have also been staging regular gatherings at the Saudi and Bahraini embassies to protest the Saudi-backed repression of Bahraini demonstrators and the brutal killing of activists there.

According to local sources, scores of people have been killed by the Saudi-backed Bahraini government forces.

They have also stormed houses, razed mosques and burned the Holy Qur'an to further fuel the outrage sparked in the Muslim world against Bahrain's Al Khalifa royal family and their Al Saud allies.
