TEHRAN – Hamidreza Taraqqi of the Islamic Coalition Party (ICP) has commented that the Saudi Arabia’s military intervention in Bahrain to suppress the protesters will lead to the Saudi government’s political isolation.

“Suppression of Bahraini protesters by the Saudi forces goes against the United Nations charter and the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council’s agreement and has increased the Arab nations’ hatred toward the Saudi government, and this issue can lead to the Saudi government’s political isolation in the future,” Taraqqi told ISNA on Saturday.
The politician also criticized the U.S. policy on Bahrain, saying the U.S. has a double standard toward the popular uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa.
Although they claim they support the establishment of democratic governments in the region, they do not recognize the pro-democracy movement of people in Bahrain and some other Arab states, he said.
