Amir-Abdollahian:

'Saudi desire to rule over region will never come true'

TEHRAN, Jun. 07 (MNA) – Iranian Parliament's General Director for International Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said Saudi Arabia dreams of being the older brother who can rule over the region, but it will never come true.

Addressing the regional issues in an interview on Tuesday, Amir-Abdollahian said the formation of Arab NATO is more like a political joke.

Explaining the causes of the recent tensions in Qatar-Saudi Arabia ties, he said the two countries have had territorial, border, legal and political disputes for years to the extent that last year, at a point, ambassadors of some Persian Gulf states were summoned; tensions emerged between Qatar and Saudi Arabia, due to Al Saudi's desire for becoming the region's hegemon; accordingly it made many efforts in recent years to rule the Arabic and Islamic countries as a hegemon, but did not succeed.

"Qatar and all of other Arabic and the Persian Gulf countries escape from continuing their political life under Saudi Arabia's servitude and slavery, which is demonstrated proportional to the pressure in some points of time," he noted.

Touching upon the formation of Arabic NATO, Amir-Abdollahian said it is more like a joke because recent experiences in the region, particularly Saudi aggression against Yemen, showed that Arabic coalition cannot be basically formed in military form, but only may give place for the US, France and UK to establish military bases in Saudi Arabia or other countries in the region.

He regretted the overt and covert security, economic and political relations between Riyadh and Tel Aviv, saying Israel encourages Saudi Arabia to fuel the conflict dreaming that it would own sovereignty and hegemony over the Persian Gulf countries in the wake of the tensions and conflicts.

Americans believe that sowing discord among Islamic and regional countries can provide ample opportunities for America and the Zionist regime to penetrate the region.
