Military Intervention Complicates Situation in Persian Gulf

Addressing an international conference on Islamic awakening here in Tehran on Tuesday, Salehi said that military intervention by a number of foreign states in Bahrain has turned a domestic issue into a regional and international crisis.

"Such a behavior is not justifiable," Salehi stated, adding, "(Launching) Military intervention to encounter the peaceful demands of a majority of the people in a country runs counter to the establishment of peace, stability and security in the critical region of the Persian Gulf."

As regards Iran's stance, Salehi said, "We are against any kind of foreign interference and meddling with the nations' demands and occupation of other countries under any excuse both in Bahrain and Libya."

He further called such military interventions a serious threat to global peace and security.

Anti-government protesters have been holding peaceful demonstrations across Bahrain since mid-February, calling for an end to the Al Khalifa dynasty's over-40-year rule.

Violence against the defenseless people escalated after a Saudi-led conglomerate of police, security and military forces from the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) member states - Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar - were dispatched to the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom on March 13 to help Manama crack down on peaceful protestors.

So far, tens of people have been killed, hundreds have gone missing and about 1,000 others have been injured.

Yet, protests and rallies continued throughout the country in defiance of the martial law put in place by Manama since last month.

During the recent days, Bahrainis have repeatedly underlined that they will continue protests until the regime collapses and condemned Riyadh's involvement in the suppression of the revolution.
