Bahrain's repeatition of Saudi claims bears nothing but deepening gaps

TEHRAN, Sep. 27 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi advised some Arab countries to take lessons from the fate of ancestors and to correct their strategic mistakes and abandon double standards.

In an interview with Iranian Ettelaat Newspaper on Tuesday, Ghasemi responded to the allegations posed by Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Bahrain Shaikh Khalid Bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa against the Islamic Republic.

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman while rejecting the allegations stressed the Bahraini foreign minister's remarks are irrelevant and baseless; "we have repeatedly emphasized Iran's consistent and transparent policy which is always based on good neighborliness along with mutual respect and strengthening peace and stability in the region. "

Ghasemi in response to a question on the influence of Saudi officials on adopting anti-Iran stances by Bahraini authorities said, "emulative repetition of claims and fantasies of Saudi Arabia by the Bahraini authorities would bear nothing but the destruction of all the bridges and deepening gaps."

"Anti-Iranian measures will serve well the Israeli regime and all the strategic enemies of all the Muslim countries in the region," he added.

Ghasemi in response to calling terrorists the legal parties such as Lebanese Hezbollah who are the symbol of resistance said "no doubt the title of terrorist deserves groups such as al-Qaeda, ISIL, Al-Nusra and others whose hands are stained with the blood of Muslims in the region and even other nations of the world."

Ghsemi noted those whose origin is Wahhabi and Takfiri are terrorists not the Hezbollah who is alleged guilty due to the resistance against outrageous Israeli and takfiri groups' aggression and crimes.

Addressing the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventy-first session, Bahraini FM claimed “Iran’s attempts jeopardizes our security and social peace through support provided to groups and militias under its authority such as the terrorist Hezbollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.

"All Arab countries have spared no effort to build with this neighbouring country -Iran- the best possible relations on the basis of good neighbourliness and respect for State sovereignty," he claimed further.
