The Iranian foreign ministry spokesman says the recent remarks made by some Arab officials on the three Iranian Persian Gulf islands are interference in the Islamic Republic’s internal affairs.
“Raising or repeating any claim about the three Iranian islands is considered by the Islamic Republic of Iran as an uncalculated remark which…lacks political and legal authenticity since it is incompatible with the principle of non-interference in other countries’ internal affairs,” Ramin Mehmanparast said.
Reacting to Saul al-Faisal’s remarks about a possible merger of Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, the spokesman noted that paying attention to people’s legitimate demands is the best solution to the ongoing crisis in Bahrain.
“Any form of foreign interference in Bahrain or proposing baseless plans without paying attention to people’s votes will only deepen the existing wounds,” he added.
Mehmanparast said Iran believes that people’s support is the real source of power for the regional countries.
“Iran believes that regional cooperation within this framework will meet the interests of the Islamic world and foil the Zionist conspiracies that aim to create rifts,” he noted.
