Dubai police commander-in-chief Lt.-Col. Dahi Khalfan Tamim has warned Iran against involving the GCC in any conflict with the West, saying that the GCC will react strongly to any threat against its stability.
Tamim said that the Gulf countries respect Iran as a neighboring Muslim country, but will not accept any hostility that directly impacts the lives of people in the region.
He also said that Iran might have sleeper agents in the region, and added,
“My advice to [Iran is to] keep them sleepy because it is not in the interests of Iranians in the region to destabilize host countries.”
Khalfan said Iran’s conflict with the U.S. over its nuclear enrichment program should not involve the GCC.
“We believe Iranian leaders who do not complicate issues with their fiery statements will not allow to sever their relations with the nations in the Gulf, because such a move will backfire on their nation,” he said.
