Two senior officials from Arab countries of the Persian Gulf stated about actual loss of confidence between Iran and the Gulf countries, calling Tehran to renounce the "desire for getting control over the Gulf region", TRT Arabic website reported.
Bahrain's first deputy parliamentary speaker Ghanem al-Buainain spoke in an interview to London-based Ash Sharq al Awsat about low level of confidence of the Gulf countries on Iran. "We want the Iranian leadership to prove that it has broke ties with groups and parties of the Gulf, and, above all, Husits in Yemen, who are in war with Saudi Arabia," he said.
Iranian Parliamentary Speaker Ali Larijani disapproved speculation on Iran's desire for opening the security fronts of in some the Persian Gulf countries, including Bahrain.
Ghanem al-Buainain demanded Iran to pass to concrete actions, adding that "intergovernmental relations are not based only on words".
"I hope Iran's actions will not be the acts to realize a long-standing dream on Iranian dominance over the Persian Gulf, particularly in Bahrain," the Bahraini official said.
The head of the Emirates National Assembly Ahmed Ben Shabib Zahiri called Iran to show its "good intentions" in recognition of the sovereignty and independence of the Arab countries of Gulf States with concrete steps.
Arab countries of the Gulf sharply criticized Iran in December 2009, when Tehran was accused of supporting Husits in the fight against Yemen and violation of the Saudi Arabia's sovereignty.
