Iran rejects interference accusations by Gulf states

Iran yesterday rejected as "baseless" allegations by Gulf Arab states that Tehran is interfering in their internal affairs, the official IRNA news agency reported.

"Shifting the regional states' responsibility in regards to their domestic problems is to escape realities on the ground," foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast was quoted as saying.

His comments came a day after the six Gulf Cooperation Council states -- Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates-- in a joint statement, said they "reject and denounce" Iran's "continued interference" in their internal affairs.

The GCC statement added that Tehran must "immediately and completely stop these actions and policies that increase regional tension and threaten security and stability".
