TEHRAN (Iran News) – Members of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Iranian Parliament have censured the recent US-brokered normalization of ties between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain with the Zionist regime of Israel.
The Iranian lawmakers made the announcement in a meeting held on Sunday with the participation of the representatives of the Islamic Resistance groups, Spokesman of the Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Abolfazl Amouei told Mehr News Agency (MNA).
He added that normalization of the two Persian Gulf’s littoral states relations with Israel was the main topic of the Iranian Parliament’s Sunday agenda.
The meeting was attended by Khaled al-Qaddoumi, the Hamas representative in Tehran; Naser Abu Sharif, Head of the Islamic Jihad Movement Bureau in Tehran; Salah Fahas, representative of Amal (Hope) Islamic Movement; and Abdallah Safi Al Din, Hezbollah’s representative in Tehran.
Representatives of the Islamic Resistance groups believed that the US-brokered normalization of ties between UAE, Bahrain and the Zionist regime will have nothing but hatred for the rulers of those governments.
Bahrain and the UAE signed official agreements at the White House on Tuesday enabling full normalization of their relations with Israel. The deals had been announced by Trump earlier, in September and August.
The deals were signed between Emirati and Bahraini foreign ministers, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani, and Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Trump penned his blessing into the accords.
Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif described the US president’s move to broker peace deals between Israel and certain Persian Gulf Arab states as an election propaganda.
“@realDonaldTrump desperately needed a campaign photo. His son-in-law blackmailed their regional clients into giving him one,” the top Iranian diplomat tweeted on Monday.
