Iran is planning to suggest a new initiative to establish a new regional coalition to secure navigation in the Arab Gulf.
The suggested coalition will include Saudi Arabia Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, Iraq, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Iran.
It will be put under direct supervision of the United Nations (UN).
Mohamed Javad Zaif, Iran’s Foreign Minister, met reporters Monday’s morning in the headquarters of the UN and told them the main points of initiative.
He added that Yemen may be joined that coalition later when stability restored to that country.
Zarif assured that Tehran doesn’t refuse joining of Yemen but what is going there is still unclear so far.
He revealed that Iranian president Hassan Rouhani will submit that initiative during his speech to the General Assembly of the UN in New York next Wednesday.
Iran’s FM went on to say that he is about to unveil all details of the Iranian initiative to all concerned countries.
The initiative changes trends in the region, he said.
Peoples on the both coasts of the Gulf should cooperate and depend of themselves to get security instead of buying it from foreign powers.
Unveiling of this initiative coincides with US efforts to draw a plan to create a military coalition of 50 nations to secure liberty of navigation the Gulf.
Israel is expected to be a member of this coalition.
It is worth to mention that the last months saw a significant increase of attacks of oil tankers carrying crude oil to customers in Asia and Europe.
Two vital facilities of Aramco, a Saudi oil giant were targeted on September 14 by unknown raiders.
The two facilities suffered from serious damages.
Some experts claim the Houthi rebels in Yemen would attack the Saudi facilities to revenge the Saudi-led Arab coalition on their country.
The UN estimated that some 10 million Yemenis suffer from malnourishment and rocketing rates of baby deaths.
