Interference Charge RejectedInterference Charge Rejected

Iran has rejected as baseless recent remarks by the head of the (Persian) Gulf Cooperation Council, who has accused the Islamic Republic of meddling in the affairs of Arab countries.  On October 15, (P)GCC Secretary General Abdullatif bin Rashid al-Zayani claimed that Iran was pursuing the policy of interference in the domestic affairs of Arab countries, saying such policies threaten security in those states and in the entire Middle East region. An informed source at the foreign ministry dismissed the allegation and said the Islamic Republic’s foreign policy is based on the principles of “moderation, political wisdom, good neighborliness and non-interference in the affairs of neighboring countries,” IRNA reported on Thursday.
