TEHRAN - Iranian Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi said Tuesday that military intervention in the Persian Gulf further complicates the situation, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.
Salehi rejected military solutions to the regional problems, and accused certain regional countries of deploying their military troops in Bahrain, cautioning that the move would further complicate the situation, the report said. Troops from Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates (UAE) entered Bahrain in March to help control the Shiite-led protesters who demanded democratic reforms from the Sunni dynasty that has ruled them for more than 200 years.
Military intervention by a number of foreign states in Bahrain has turned a domestic issue into a regional and international crisis, he was quoted as saying. "We are against any kind of foreign interference and meddling with the nations' demands and occupation of other countries under any excuse both in Bahrain and Libya," Salehi said, according to the report.
