Iran, Indonesia Back MENA Moves

“The two Muslim and democratic countries of Iran and Indonesia support anti-dictatorship and democracy-seeking movements,” said Iranian Parliament (Majlis) Speaker Ali Larijani in a joint press conference with Indonesian Speaker of House of Representatives Marzuki Alie in Jakarta on Thursday.

The top Iranian diplomat added that close parliamentary relations between the two countries in regional and international circles would play an important role in meeting demands of the Muslim world, including the Palestinian case, and the uprisings in the two strategic regions.

Alie, for his part, said Tehran and Jakarta enjoy common stance on Middle East developments, adding, “Parliaments of Iran and Indonesia will not accept any foreign interference in the Middle Eastern and North African countries.”

The senior Indonesian official stressed the importance of promoting mutual trade and economic cooperation in line with political relations.

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

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

In February, another revolution led to the ouster of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak after three decades of authoritarian rule. Both dictators were firmly backed by the US and most other Western 'democracies.'

Revolutions have also begun in Libya, Yemen, and Bahrain, while anti-government demonstrations have been held in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman, and Algeria.
