GCC rejects Iranian officials’ threats against countries in the region
Secretary General Abdullatif bin Rashid al-Zayani said such threats contravene principles of good neighborliness
The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) has rejected threats by some Iranian officials against the GCC and other regional countries, considering them violations of diplomatic norms.
In a statement released by the Council, GCC Secretary General Abdullatif bin Rashid al-Zayani said threats by the Iranian officials contravene principles of good neighborliness and non-interference in internal affairs of other countries, as stated by the UN Charter. He added that Iran continued to interfere in affairs of the GCC and regional countries including Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar and Yemen.
Al-Zayani noted that the Iran’s actions reflect its hostile positions and its willingness to continue meddling in affairs of countries of the region, and provoke international forces to undermine security and stability of the region.
The GCC Chief called on Iran to reconsider its “negative policy” against countries in the region, and urged the international community to prevent the Islamic Republic from undermining peace and security in the region.
