Arab Quartet condemns Iranian interference

The Arab Quartet ministerial committee met in Cairo on Tuesday (September 11th) on the sidelines of the Arab League's 150th ordinary session to discuss ways to counter Iran’s continued interference in the domestic affairs of Arab countries, Egypt’s Ahram Online reported.

The committee denounced provocative anti-Arab statements made by some Iranian officials, as well as the Iranian regime’s policies of stirring sectarianism and arming groups and militias in some Arab countries.

This threatens security and obstructs regional and international efforts to resolve the conflicts in a peaceful way, they said.

The Arab Quartet comprises Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE. It was formed in mid-2017 as a diplomatic bloc to co-ordinate political stances against terrorism and foreign interference in Arab countries' affairs.

The quartet renewed condemnation of Iranian support to hostile acts in the region, including the firing of missiles against Saudi Arabia from inside Yemen.

It also condemned the Iranian intervention in Bahrain that undermines the kingdom’s security.

The quartet also condemned Iranian interference in Syria, warning of the serious repercussions it has on Syria's future, sovereignty, security, independence, national unity and territorial integrity.
