Arab countries bear heavy costs due to their anti-Iran policies

January 5, The Iran Project – While paying high costs for their anti-Iran policies, Arabic regimes have imposed unprecedented savings on their nations by taking indirect taxes, abolition of subsidies for basic commodities and public services such as health, education, communications, electricity and water.

Considering the Islamic Republic of Iran as a strategic threat, major Arab states of the Persian Gulf, except Oman, pay great costs to buy weapons to tackle the possible threat.

Turkey’s Anatolia news agency said in a report that according to the data released by the America Defense Ministry, Qatar has been the biggest arms recipient in the last 2 months of 2016, buying weaponry that amounted to $21bn.

In the same list, Qatar is followed by Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arabic Emirates.

Referring to the Arab states measures to strengthen their defense capabilities, RaiAlyoum newspaper said  Iranophobia  made these country into signing defense treaties with Western countries such as America, England and France.

Western countries have created a wave of Iranophobia in the region to put pressure on the Persian Gulf Arab states to sign contracts to buy weapons so that they can save their war industries of the recession.

The best way for Arab countries is to deal with Iran through dialogue, such as the nuclear deal signed between Iran and the world powers, RaiAlyoum newspaper wrote, adding but if they decide to confront Iran, using weapons is not a good solution.
