The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) issued a statement on Thursday backing Morocco's decision to cut diplomatic ties with Iran over the Tehran-allied Hezbollah movement's alleged support for the Western Sahara independence movement Polisario Front.
"One of the principles of Iranian foreign policy is recognising the sovereignty and territorial integrity of countries and not intervening in their internal affairs", spokesman Bahram Ghassemi said.
The same source says it supports all measures taken by Morocco defending its "security and stability".
Following Morocco's decision to sever diplomatic relations with Iran, the GCC expressed, through the voice of its Secretary General, Abdellatif Ben Rached Ziani, its "total and firm support for this decision".
"It can not be said that Iran is not aware of all this", Khalfi said.
Rabat indicated that Algeria has helped Iran and its Lebanese Shiite ally, Hezbollah, train and arm Polisario fighters via the Iranian embassy in Algiers.
Hezbollah has accused Morocco of caving into pressure from the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia after it cut ties with Iran. The Saudi Foreign Ministry said it "strongly condemns Iranian interference in Morocco's internal affairs through its tool, Hezbollah's terrorist militia, which is training the elements of the so-called "Polisario" group".
The Iranian embassy worker is said to have enabled the facilitation of contacts and meetings, and unlocking logistic facilities for Hezbollah military officials to head to Tindouf, and meet up with Polisario members.
