PGCC Puts Cover on Its Illegitimacy: Lawmaker

“PGCC member states are attributing groundless issues to Iran in the name of the council in order to put a cover on their internal problems and escape the crisis of illegitimacy,” said a member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis) Mohammad Baba-Ahmadi on Wednesday.

The Iranian legislator added that the PGCC states make such claims against the Islamic Republic to divert the world public opinion from the ongoing developments in the region.

“The council's countries are currently at the worst political situation… and are merely concerned about their survival and existence,” he further explained.

Baba-Ahmadi noted that the region would witness a change in approaches to political and regional developments in the near future with regard to the Islamic awakening in many Arab countries.

In the final statement of the 119th session of the PGCC foreign ministers, concluded in the Saudi port of Jeddah late on Tuesday, the council expressed deep alarm at Iran's nuclear program.

PGCC member states also accused the Islamic Republic of interfering in the internal affairs of Persian Gulf countries.


The remarks by the Iranian lawmaker came after Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said the recent claims made by the PGCC are unfounded and false.

Mehmanparast described these claims as an attempt to divert the international community's attention from the militarist and crisis-causing measures of certain regional countries in the face of the people's legitimate demands.

Iran says that its nuclear activities are peaceful and in line with regulations of the International Atomic Energy Agency and the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty to generate electricity and carry out medical research.
