UAE cannot buy security from Tel Aviv: Zarif

TEHRAN, Aug. 24 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that the UAE has turned to the Zionist regime to buy security, while Israel cannot even ensure its own.

Zarif delivered his fifth and concluding online speech on the World in Transition on Monday.

Referring to Iran and the world in transition, he said that almost all countries in the Persian Gulf region, except for Iran and, more recently, Iraq, suffer from the lack of democracy.

Oil has sparked global competition in the Persian Gulf region, he added.

Zarif further reviewed the issues raised in the previous four sessions, citing the miscalculations of countries in the region, including Saddam's invasion of Kuwait and the siege of Qatar by some of his neighbors.

He noted that almost all countries in the south of the Persian Gulf have land disputes and struggle to compete with other neighbors.

According to Zarif, geographical asymmetry is a serious challenge in the region, which has led some countries, such as Iraq, to ​​attack their neighbors for more resources.

In his previous speech, he examined regional and global hegemonies and the emergence of new powers.
