UAE, Bahrain seek to grant “Israel” bases in region: Rouhani

TEHRAN, Sep. 16 (YPA) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday that “the UAE and Bahrain seek to grant Israel bases in the region, and they should bear all the dire consequences.”

Rouhani addressed the normalizing Arab rulers, in a speech, saying “Where has Arabism gone and where has brotherhood gone with Palestine? How do you extend your hands to the Israelis?”

Rouhani made it clear that the steps of the Arab rulers, who signed normalization agreement with Israel on Tuesday, undermine the security of the region.

On Tuesday, the UAE and Bahrain signed at the White House in Washington on normalization agreements with Tel Aviv, in the presence of US President Donald Trump.
