Iranian expert: Iran's interference in Bahrain's affairs aims at crisis resolving

Azerbaijan, Baku, June 10 / Trend A. Tagiyeva /
Having favorable political, economic and geostrategic location, Iran plays an important role in the region. Thus, Tehran's interference in Manama's affairs to resolve the Bahrain conflict is quite naturally, Iranian expert on the Middle East Hassan Hanizadeh said.

"Iran's mediation to resolve the crisis in Bahrain is a humanitarian duty of this country," he told Trend over phone from Tehran.

The expert said that from the very first day of the conflict in Bahrain, Iran was trying to convey demands of people without direct intervention to the authorities of the country. However, Saudi Arabia's military intervention in this country further aggravated the crisis, he added.

During the press-conference the Iranian president told media that Iran has a plan to resolve the conflict in Bahrain, without explaining the full details of this initiative, Mehr news agency reported.
Ahmadinejad said that he will tell about his own initiative in its time.

The President's statement was made amid the statements of the Cooperation Council of Arab Gulf States that he promises to strictly prevent the attempts of foreign interference in the internal affairs of the organization's member-countries.

The expert said that the authorities of the U.S. and Saudi Arabia support the current regime in Bahrain, as there is a U.S. military base in Bahrain.
The expert said that the intervention of Saudi Arabia in Bahrain's affairs is taken for granted, whereas Iran is not allowed to play the role of mediator to resolve the problem.
"This proves once again that the U.S. is playing a double policy of oppressing Iran and exerting pressure on Tehran," the expert.

But the expert on the Middle East Saleh Zeitoun said that the situation in Bahrain confirms the direct involvement of Iran in the internal affairs of Bahrain in the form of overt incitement through the media.

"Iran aims at creating discord among the population of Bahrain, which will grow into a civil war in the country that will not be limited to only Bahrain, but will cover neighboring countries," Zeitoun told Trend by e-mail from Amman.
More than 1,000 military arrived in Bahrain from Saudi Arabia on March 14 as part of the mission of the Cooperation Council of the Gulf States under the pretence of the need of provision of public order.
The Council of Cooperation of the Gulf Arab States earlier expressed its concern over Iran's interference with the internal affairs of its member states through conspiracy. In a statement, the Council said Iran carried out espionage activity against Kuwait and Bahrain.

Zeitoun said that Iran and the Arab Gulf countries must discuss many sensitive issues to stabilize the region.

"Iran must renounce the greedy attacks on the entire Gulf region to resolve this problem," he added.

Zeitoun said that the Iranian President's words on the Iranian initiative to solve the Bahraini conflict is nothing but a maneuver to keep the situation in Bahrain under his control.

"Ahmadinejad realizes that the situation in Bahrain may not be resolved in Iran's favor, so he decided to immediately intervene this way," Zeitoun said.

Another version is the moment that Ahmadinejad tries to divert the world attention from the problems occurring inside Iran, Zeitoun said.
