The rulers of Saudi Arabia should remember the fate of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and should “accept the desire of their people and not collude with foreign forces”, Iran’s defence minister said yesterday.

Tasnim news agency reported that, during a commemoration ceremony for Dezful which was subjected to heavy air bombardment by the Iraqi force during the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s, Hossein Dehghan said:

We say to the Arab leaders to accept the wishes of their people and not collude with foreign forces.

He also noted that the foreign forces are concerned with their interests and will commit any crime to serve their interests. “Is there freedom, human rights, national independence and national interest and goals in the Gulf countries? It is clear that these interests are those of the leaders,” he said.

Dehghan pointed out that these countries have the worst human rights conditions but no one talks about it.

Saudi Arabia is attacking Yemen, but all the organisations that are supposed to be sponsors of peace are standing by idly, and even support this and tell the Yemeni people to relinquish their weapons and surrender to the invader in order for them to help them.
