Morocco’s foreign minister, Nasser Bourita, on Wednesday, April 2, 2018, announced diplomatic relations suspension between his country and the Iranian regime and recalled his ambassador from Tehran, to protest the Iranian regime meddling in the internal affairs of Rabat.
Broken off relations with Tehran is a weighty political blow to the Iranian regime. Of course, this is not the first time Morocco has cut off relations with Tehran. Previously, once in early 2009, Rabat had cut off its relations with the Mullahs regime and resumed it in 2014, but this time is completely different because the clerical regime is in a very different and difficult situation. The recent collapse of political relation is not a matter of bilateral relations. Many Arab countries, including Jordan, the UAE, Saudi Arabia and even Qatar, supported Rabat action.
Here we go again, witnessing the same reckless pattern of interferences by the #Iranian regime using the exact same formula over and over.. #Morroco #Bahrain #Yemen and more to come unless addressed collectively https://t.co/4oHVZHkGRW

The spokesperson for the Arab League’s secretary-general, Mahmoud Afifi, in a statement announced its solidarity with Morocco on interrupting relations with Iran regime and emphasized that the regional countries should not sit on their hands against the strategy of Iran in the region.
Declaring Tehran’s meddling condemnation in the domestic affairs of Arab countries, the Arab League statement mirrors a firm stance against Iran’s interference across the region, and states that a four-party committee has been assigned to Iran’s dossier to specify an active framework with the goal of coordinating policies and unifying positions in the face of Iran’s threats and meddling.

It is noteworthy that, as it was expected, the Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi denied all the accusations raised in this regard. More important than refuting, however, is his weak language that expresses Tehran’s grave concerns on this dire matter.
“We see it necessary to make it clear that one of Iran’s most important foundations and foreign policy principles in its relations with other governments and countries across the globe is, and has been, deep respect and recognizing their sovereignty and security, and not meddling in the internal affairs of other countries,” Bahram Ghasemi said in a press conference.
Cutting off the political relation due to the Iran regime and its proxy group Lebanese Hezbollah’s interfering in Morocco to disrupt stability, is a prove of the alleges that persist on the destructive role of the Iranian Mullahs in the regional conflicts, the subject that sounds more important on the eve of May 12th Iran nuclear deal deadline.
This isolation affects the balance of power both internationally and in the domestic confrontation between the people of Iran and the clerical regime. Raising the spirit of the resistance among people, the international and regional isolation instead broaden the rift between the regime’s rival factions and intensify the internal crisis of the regime.
Respecting this fact, the Iranian resistance has always welcomed the severing ties with tyranny regime in Iran. The President-elect of the NCRI, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, has said in an interview with Egypt Today that the government of Egypt made the right decision to freeze diplomatic relations with Iran.
