Khatibzadeh Denies Bahraini Accusations
Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesperson denies the Bahraini allegations about Iranian weapons and explosives discovered in Bahrain.
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh responded to the Bahraini Interior Ministry's statement and described allegations about Iranian discovered arms and explosives as baseless.
Khatibzadeh pointed out that “such hollow and baseless claims by Bahraini officials simultaneously with the Manama Conference, which was turned into a tribune against Iran, shows Bahrain’s lack of comprehension about the regional issues."
He said that Bahrain cannot cover up its internal and external problems by making such accusations.
"Bahrain has preferred its relations with the illegitimate Zionist regime to having good ties with its own people," the Spokesperson added.
Khatibzadeh's statement comes two days after Bahrain's Interior Ministry announced on Twitter arresting a group of "terrorists" that was plotting "operations against security and civil peace."
The Ministry claimed that "weapons and explosives from Iran were seized" from the group that is "linked with terrorist groups in Iran."
It is worth noting that Bahrain has been frequently accused by human rights groups of committing violations against activists and failing to meet the basic standards of fair trials.
