Bahrain trying to divert popular protests

News ID: 4068880 -
TEHRAN, Aug. 25 (MNA) – Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ghasemi rejected the claims made by Bahrain and advised the Bahraini rulers to put projection and distortion aside in dealing with the popular protests in that country.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran has never been spreading violent and destabilizing measure in its neighbor countries including Bahrain,” said Bahram Ghasemi the Spokesman for Iranian Foreign Ministry on Friday.

He made the remarks after Bahraini officials accused Iran of being involved in supporting terrorist cells in the tiny island of the Persian Gulf. Ghasemi described the claims as baseless and ridiculous.

“Simultaneous with what international human rights organizations have exposed about widespread use of torture against political prisoners in Bahrain, once again the Bahraini government is projecting with inappropriate, false, and unprovable claims,” articulated the Iranian diplomat.

Mr. Ghasemi advised Bahraini rulers to abandon oppression, torture, efforts to distract attention from peaceful protests of the people of Bahrain, and failed security and military ways. Instead, Ghasemi proposed to Bahraini rulers, it is better for them to solve their problems with their people through dialogue, interaction, civil methods, and reconciliatory methods.
