UAE Slams Hostile Iranian Statements on Bahrain.

Summary: ABU DHABI - The United Arab Emirates has strongly condemned the continuous hostile and irresponsible statements made by a number of Iranian officials against Bahrain by way of falsifying established historical facts.

It also urged the Iranian government to disown these statements, denounce them and put an end to such claims.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, an official source at the Foreign Ministry said that the UAE followed with ultimate resentment these statements that constitute a blatant transgression on an independent sovereign state, on its identity and Arab character.

The Foreign Ministry source added that these statements that kept coming from responsible officials in Iran recently, create an additional reason for instability in the region and hinder the efforts of Arab Gulf Cooperation Council countries to build good-neighbour relations with Iran based on mutual respect without interfering in the internal affairs of others.
