Source: RFE/RL

The Gulf Cooperation Council of Arab-led states has condemned Iran for allegedly "interfering" in the internal affairs of the council's member states. The statement was issued after an emergency meeting of the mostly Sunni Gulf bloc in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, on April 3.

The council accused mainly Shi'ite Iran of trying to stoke sectarian divisions in Bahrain, where Shi'ite demonstrators have been protesting against the island country's Sunni monarchy.

Iran has criticized Saudi Arabia for sending troops to Bahrain to support the government in confrontations with protesters.

The Gulf Cooperation Council statement also said that the council condemned what it called "blatant Iranian interference in Kuwait" by allegedly setting up a spy network there.

Iranian authorities have previously denied the Kuwaiti spying allegations.
