Iran Slams Arab League Sum­mit’s Fi­nal State­ment

Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

TEHRAN - Iran’s For­eign Min­istry Spokesman has blasted the fi­nal state­ment of the Arab League sum­mit, re­ject­ing the al­le­ga­tions made against the Is­lamic Repub­lic in some parts of it.

In a state­ment on Sun­day, Bahram Qasemi re­it­er­ated Iran’s prin­ci­pled pol­icy of non-in­ter­fer­ence in the in­ter­nal af­fairs of other coun­tries.

Qasemi also ex­pressed deep re­gret over some parts of the fi­nal state­ment of the Arab League sum­mit which was held in Dhahran, Saudi Ara­bia.

“As in pre­vi­ous state­ments, once again base­less al­le­ga­tions and false claims have been made against the Is­lamic Repub­lic of Iran,” Qasemi said, stress­ing that the state­ment has ig­nored the facts on the ground and failed to iden­tify the ex­act causes of re­gional crises.

There were high ex­pec­ta­tions that the meet­ing would take a pos­i­tive step to­wards re­gional con­ver­gence in iden­ti­fy­ing the key fac­tors of restor­ing sta­bil­ity and peace to the re­gion, apart from adop­tion of repet­i­tive dou­ble stan­dards, Qasemi noted.

How­ever, he added, the dark shadow of Saudis’ de­struc­tive poli­cies is ev­i­dent over the fi­nal state­ment of the sum­mit.

He em­pha­sized that the Greater and Lesser Tunbs, and Abu Musa is­lands be­long to Iran reiterating that the ef­forts of some south­ern neigh­bors to cre­ate fake names for these is­lands is a base­less, use­less and es­sen­tially false claim.

Qasemi strongly con­demned such claims as out­dated and in­ef­fec­tive, and called them an in­stance of in­ter­fer­ence in Iran’s in­ter­nal af­fairs.
