Iran’s Foreign Ministry deplored a joint statement by Malaysia and Saudi Arabia accusing Iran of interference in other countries, recommending the Kuala Lumpur government avoid moves that undermine Muslim unity. In a statement on Wednesday, Riyadh and Kuala Lumpur “expressed serious concerns over Iranian interference in the internal affairs of countries in the region”, as the Saudi king wrapped up his trip to Malaysia on the first leg of a month-long Asia journey. Describing the anti-Iran charge made in the statement as a new episode in failed Saudi attempts to falsify realities, Bahram Qasemi, the ministry’s spokesman said such accusations are totally “delusional”, Tasnim News Agency reported. The spokesman reiterated Iran’s commitment to the principles of good neighborliness, mutual respect and non-interference in the internal affairs of others, stressing that Iran cooperates with all countries to promote peace and stability and fight terrorism. Qasemi asked Kuala Lumpur to exercise more wisdom, do a careful analysis of Iran’s policies and avoid falling into traps laid by “Zionist lobbies”.
