Deputy FM: Enemies seeking to sow discord between Iran, Persian Gulf states

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian warned of enemies’ plots to create rift between Tehran and other Persian Gulf littoral states.

“Some foreign parties may seek to create rift between us and the Persian Gulf littoral states by fueling debates such as Iranophobia,” Amir Abdollahian said in an interview on Wednesday.

He added that bilateral ties between the Islamic Republic and the Persian Gulf littoral states are based on friendship, cooperation and peaceful coexistence.

“All the regional countries, all Arab states and the officials of the Arab countries laud Iran’s constructive, positive and progressive role in countering terrorism and this is the reality that exists between us and the regional countries,” Amir Abdollahian said.

In relevant remarks in September, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani warned against the spread of a new wave of Islamophobia and Iranophobia by the Zionist regime of Israel through extending support for extremist and Takfiri groups in the Muslim countries.

“We are moderate people and Islam is the religion of moderation not leaning towards left or right,” President Rouhani said in the World Mosque Day Conference in Tehran.

He also condemned Zionists’ propaganda against Iran and Islam promoting Iranophobia and Islamophobia across the world, calling the campaign baseless.
