Tehran, Riyadh Differences Can Be Resolved

In an interview with IRNA in the Iranian capital Tehran on Thursday, Salehi said the Islamic Republic of Iran and Saudi Arabia only differ in their perspective on regional developments.

He also described Saudi Arabia as an important regional country and a major player in the international community, stressing that Tehran and Riyadh enjoy good and long-standing relations.

Salehi expressed hope that talks can clear misunderstandings, which have recently arisen between the two sides as a result of the developments in the Middle East region.

Meanwhile, the top Iranian official stated that Iran recognizes and respects Bahrain's independence and territorial integrity.

The Islamic Republic desires peace, security, and stability in the tiny Persian Gulf island, Salehi noted.

The Bahraini government has declared that Iran has had no intervention in the kingdom's domestic affairs, he pointed out.

"We feel that what happens in Bahrain is for the Bahraini people to reach consensus on, and to resolve,” Salehi underlined.

Since the beginning of Bahrain's revolution, thousands of anti-government protesters have taken to the streets across the country, calling for more rights, freedom and wide-ranging political reforms in the political system of their country.

According to local sources, dozens of people have been killed and hundreds have been arrested in the government crackdown on peaceful demonstrations.

Member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Iranian Majlis (parliament) Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh said earlier this month that Iran's precondition to engage in bilateral talks with Saudi Arabia is that Riyadh pulls out its military forces from Bahrain.
