Nanvakenari: US unreliable ally for Persian Gulf kingdoms

Service : Politic
Tehran, Oct 19, ICANA – A lawmaker warned Iran's neighboring Arab kingdoms who rushed to back US President Donald Trump after his recent bombastic anti-Iran speech not to be assured of unflagging US support for their rule.

Talking to ICANA, Valiollah Nanvakenari also reminded them that Washington's steps toward reneging its obligations under the 2015 Iran nuclear accord is yet another sign that the US cannot be trusted to keep its word.

In his address on Oct. 13, Trump said his administration will not confirm Tehran's commitment to the nuclear deal to the US Congress. Oct. 15 was the third deadline for him to extend the certification of Iran's compliance, which is required by US law every 90 days, Financialtribune wrote.

"The US is not a dependable supporter for regional states, and this has been proven so many times," Nanvakenari said, citing former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, who was a darling of the US during his eight-year aggression against Iran in the 80s, but fell from favor with Washington after attacking Kuwait and was later toppled by the US invasion of Iraq in 2003.

"Arab rulers in the Persian Gulf ought to learn a lesson from history," he said.

"I hope US allies in the Persian Gulf will not [keep] running away from realities and show prudence and adopt right positions to avoid future challenges."
