Tehran (IP) - The spokesman for Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the final statement of the foreign ministers of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC).

Iran PressIran news: In response to the final statement of PGCC member states, issued on Thursday, Saeed Khatibzadeh described the council's approach as totally unconstructive. 

Members of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) on Wednesday called for their participation in talks on Iran's nuclear program.

Khatibzadeh said Iran had always adhered to international laws and its commitments and did not tolerate any interference in its nuclear, missile, military, and defense programs.

The diplomat highlighted the significance of Bu Musa, Great Tunb, and Lesser Tunb islands as inseparable parts of the Iranian soil and emphasized that Iran considered any antithesis in this regard as an intervention in its internal affairs and territorial integrity. 

He noted that pursuiting such stances towards Iran would weaken the dialogue-oriented views, turn the region into a weapons depot for the Western companies, and paves the way for more foreign intervention in the region.

Khatibzadeh stressed: "Iran, based on its strategic view and fundamental policies, always considers solving the region's problems by means of interaction and cooperation."

"Despite the recent crimes of the Zionist regime and the martyrdom of hundreds of oppressed Palestinians in Gaza and the desecration of the Holy Quds, some countries in the region have turned a blind eye to these crimes and have turned attack Iran and regional resistance groups," he pointed out with regard to the Palestinian issue. 

The Iranian spokesman referred to the Saudi war on the Yemeni nation and said: "Countries whose interventions in other countries have led to the killing of innocent civilians, especially in Yemen and the spread of insecurity and terrorism in the region, are trying to cover up their crimes against human rights and evade international punishment."
