Majlis Al-Shoura denounces Iranian statement
April 4, 2011
Following the conclusion of its 17th ordinary session in Riyadh yesterday, the Majlis Al-Shoura (Consultative Council) issued a statement strongly denouncing the irresponsible accusations issued by the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Iranian Parliament against the Kingdom. Making such false accusations will only serve to ignite sectarian strife, the statement warned. Pointing out the hypocrisy of Iran’s allegations, it added, “While Iran blatantly intervenes in the affairs of the region, the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Iranian Parliament accuses the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia of interventions.” The statement stressed that upsetting the security and stability of any GCC member state constitutes direct harm to the security and stability of all GCC member states, as stipulated in various written agreements.
