Arab FMs condemn Iran's intervention in Arab affairs

Arab FMs condemn Iran's intervention in Arab affairs
Arab foreign ministers condemned on Sunday Iran's intervention into Arab countries' affairs, saying they have asked the Arab group at the UN to address the President of the UN Security Council over Iran's violations.


In a statement after the an extraordinary meeting requested by Saudi Arabia, the Arab foreign ministers said they will ask the Arab Group at the UN to address the UN Security Council over Iran's violations of the Council's resolution 2231 on developing Tehran's ballistic missiles.

"This undermines Iran's allegations that its ballistic missile program is defensive as it threatens the Arabs' national security," the statement said.

The ministers also said they will ask the Arab Group to address the UNSC over Iran's violations of the Council's resolution 2216 by providing armed militias in Yemen with weapons, considering targeting Saudi Arabia with an Iranian-made ballistic missile launched from Yemen as an offensive from Iran.

"The Arab Group will ask the UN Security Council to assume its responsibility to maintain international peace and security," according to the statement.

The Arab foreign ministers condemned Iran's intervention into the internal affairs of Bahrain by supporting terrorists, providing them with weapons and training as well as stirring sectarian sedition.

They said that Iran establishes terrorist groups inside Bahrain that were financed and trained by Hezbollah of Lebanon and the Revolutionary Guard of Iran.

The ministers held Hezbollah responsible for aiding terror groups in many Arab countries and providing them with up-to-date weapons, including ballistic missiles.

For decades, Shiite Iran has been demonized in the Sunni-dominated Arab world who accuses the Persian state of attempting to destabilize Arab states through aiding terror and opposition groups in many Arab countries.

However, Iran has always dismissed these accusations, saying it has always sought good ties with its Arab neighbors.
