Top General: Iran to Shift Stance on UAE
  • August, 16, 2020 - 14:21

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s highest-ranking military commander unveiled a change in the approach adopted by the Islamic Republic’s Armed Forces on the United Arab Emirates after its ruling regime struck a deal with the Zionist regime on normalization of ties.

In remarks at a conference held in Tehran on Sunday, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri denounced the UAE’s decision to start a friendship with the Israeli regime and warned Abu Dhabi of the consequences it will have to face if Iran’s interests in the Persian Gulf are threatened.

“Definitely, the Iranian nation’s attitude towards this neighboring state (UAE) will change fundamentally, and the Islamic Republic’s Armed Forces will also deal with that country with different calculations,” he said.

The top commander made it clear that Iran will not tolerate any incident in the Persian Gulf or any threat to its security, whatsoever, and will hold the UAE culpable for the trouble.

Deploring the Abu Dhabi regime for brazen declaration of diplomatic relations with a regime detested by the entire free world, the Iranian general said the Zionist regime is committing atrocities in disregard to the teachings of Judaism.

It is totally unacceptable for an Arab and Muslim state like the UAE to launch overt political and economic relations with the criminal regime that is killing, imprisoning and displacing Palestinians, Major General Baqeri added.

Iranian officials have expressed full support for Palestine after the recent agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Israel on the establishment of diplomatic relations.

On Saturday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani lashed out at the UAE for the grave mistake of striking a deal with Israel on normalization of ties, warning the UAE about the consequences of allowing the Zionist regime to gain a foothold in the region.

Iran will change its approach to UAE over deal with ‘child-murdering Israeli regime’ – top commander

The freshly inked peace deal with Israel will change Tehran’s attitude towards the United Arab Emirates, a top Iranian commander has warned, saying that Abu Dhabi will now be the prime suspect for any troubles in the Persian Gulf.
“Unfortunately, the UAE has reached a deal to normalize ties with the child-murdering Israeli regime,” Chief of Staff for the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Bagheri said on Sunday.

Tehran’s approach to the UAE will change ... If something happens in the Persian Gulf region and if our national security is damaged, however small, we will hold the UAE responsible for that and we will not tolerate it.

The US-sponsored peace deal, which restores diplomatic ties between Israel and the UAE, was signed earlier this week. Among other things, Israel agreed to “suspend” its plans to annex parts of the West Bank. However, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu said the annexation was still “on the table.”

The agreement has sparked much anger in Iran, as well as many other Muslim nations. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said it was a “huge mistake” on the part of the UAE.

Rouhani’s words on the deal have apparently ruffled some feathers in Abu Dhabi, as on Sunday Iran’s charge d’affaires was summoned by the country’s foreign ministry and given a “strongly worded memo,” the WAM state news agency reported. The ministry described Rouhani’s speech as “unacceptable” and damaging to the stability of the whole region.

Aside from the condemnations by Iranian government officials and military top brass, the deal also triggered mass protests outside the UAE embassy in Tehran. On Saturday, scores of university students gathered outside the diplomatic facility to protest the agreement, condemning it as a treason to the Palestinians and the whole Muslim cause.

Setting itself up as the prime target for Iranian wrath over any incidents in the Persian Gulf might have far-reaching consequences for the UAE, especially since the troubled waters are a constant source of international tensions.

The region has seen an increase in foreign military presence since last summer, following a string of various maritime incidents, including mysterious attacks on oil tankers.

The US and its allies were quick to blame Tehran for the troubles, deploying additional forces to the area to enforce “safe” navigation. No solid evidence to back up such claims has ever emerged, however, and Tehran firmly denied any involvement.

Nothing against Arabs but their states are slaves of Israel and are carrying out zionist plans for the region. All those Persian gulf states are nothing... infact we showed even their boss KSA what it is like to mess with us. They are nothing without US and Israel.
