Senior MP: Britain Incompetent to Judge Regional Developments

"Regional nations should judge about Iran's and the region's movements, and not Britain which has always been a factor increasing problems for the regional nations in the past and now," Head of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi told FNA on Monday.

The remarks by Boroujerdi came after British Foreign Secretary William Hague told Britain's Parliament last week Tehran has helped Syria suppress anti-government protests.

He also claimed that London had "credible information" Iranian government had provided paramilitary training to Syrian security forces.

As regards the allegations, Boroujerdi pointed to the history of London's meddling in Iran and the region, and noted, "Under the present conditions, this country (Britain) is trying to portray an acceptable face of itself in the region through raising such claims."

On Thursday, Iran summoned Britain's top diplomat in Tehran to protest at Hague's accusations.

An Iranian Foreign Ministry official told British Charge d'affaires Jane Marriott that the accusations leveled by Foreign Secretary William Hague were "without any evidence or reason".

"There is no justification for the British government to raise such charges against other countries because of its own meddlesome measures and destructive role in developments in the region, especially the training of military forces in some countries in order to suppress the people," the Iranian foreign ministry stated.

Hague's claims came nearly two weeks after the British government admitted that the Saudi troops sent to Bahrain to crush the popular uprisings in the tiny Persian Gulf island have had British military training.

The British Ministry of Defense admitted that members of the Saudi Arabian National Guard dispatched to Bahrain have received military trainings from the British Armed Forces in Saudi Arabia.

Britain keeps a large and secretive military training team in Saudi Arabia. British military personnel advise and teach the kingdom's forces in areas, including crowd control and suppression.
