Turkey-(P)GCC Anti-Iran Statement Dismissed

Iran’s Foreign Ministry denounced Turkey and the (Persian) Gulf Cooperation Council for their recent anti-Iran statement, calling on them to stop shifting blame on others to cover their failures. Turkey and (P)GCC countries (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE) held a joint ministerial meeting in Riyadh on Thursday, at the end of which they issued a statement that criticized Tehran for what they alleged as its interference in other countries’ affairs. The Foreign Ministry deplored the statement on Saturday, stressing that “the countries whose irresponsible meddling in other countries have spread insecurity, war and terrorism and have violated their neighbors’ national sovereignty are not in a position to advise others against interference in regional issues,” Fars News Agency reported. “The regrettable and insecure situation in Syria, Yemen, Bahrain, Iraq and Libya is the result of the meddling of most of the countries which have gathered in Riyadh and now have resorted to a blame game to justify their failed policies.”
