Following the dismantlement of an Arab-linked terror cell in Iran, a senior Iranian lawmaker has warned Qatar over its attempts to undermine the Islamic Republic’s security.
In an interview with Lebanese satellite channel Al Mayadeen, Chairman of Iran Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Alaeddin Boroujerdi confirmed Doha’s role in having dispatched the suspected terrorists to the Islamic Republic.
On June 2, Iranian Intelligence Ministry said it had uncovered a Mossad-trained network of terrorists with links to the spy agency of “one of the most dependent and reactionary Arab countries in the region, whose dependence on the Israeli regime has become more obvious in recent years,” plotting to sabotage Iran’s upcoming presidential election, which is scheduled to be held on June 14.
“The destructive role of Qatar in the region is clear. We warn Qatar against continuing to play such a role,” Boroujerdi stated.
“We will not compromise with anyone when it comes to our national security. We did not compromise with Britain or the United States, let alone a country like Qatar…,” the lawmaker stressed.
On Tuesday, Iran Foreign Ministry summoned Qatar chargé d’affaires in Tehran to relay the Islamic Republic’s strong objection to his country’s authorities over the dismantled spy cell.
