Arab Ministerial Committee on Iran reiterates solidarity with Morocco
The Arab Ministerial Committee on Iran has reiterated its solidarity with Morocco in the face of the interference of the Iranian regime and its ally Hezbollah in the Kingdom’s internal affairs.
A statement issued by the Committee at a meeting it held in Cairo stressed that the arming and training by Iran of separatist elements of the polisario Front “threaten the territorial integrity, security and stability of Morocco.”
“These dangerous and unacceptable practices are part of the continuity of the destabilizing approach of the Iranian regime towards regional security and stability,” the statement said.
The Committee also expressed deep concern over the sectarianism fueled by Iran in Arab countries, including its support and arming of terrorist militias and the resulting chaos and instability in the region.
These moves are likely to threaten Arab national security, and consequently hinder regional efforts for a peaceful resolution of the problems and crises in the region.
The committee met on the sidelines of the 159th ordinary session of the Council of the League of Arab States, held at the level of foreign ministers, under the chairmanship of Saudi Arabia.
Besides political, economic, social, legal, financial and administrative issues, the Palestinian question tops the agenda of Council’s meeting with debates on the development of the Arab-Israeli conflict, the implementation of the Arab Peace Initiative, and Israeli violations in the occupied city of Al-Quds. Arab water security and the theft of water by Israel in the occupied Arab territories, and the occupied Syrian Arab Golan are also on the agenda.
The meeting will discuss the activation of the joint Arab action and the draft agenda of the 32nd ordinary session of the Arab Summit, which will be held in Saudi Arabia.
The event will also focus on Arab affairs and national security, including a peaceful solution to the Libyan-Egyptian border dispute and the Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, as well as an Iraqi memorandum on supporting Iraq’s rights to preserve the water resources of the Tigris and Euphrates basins.
