Kerry calls on Iran to help end Middle Eastern wars

US Secretary of State John Kerry has called on Iran to help end the ongoing wars in the Middle East as Washington’s allies continue bombing Yemen and supporting terrorist groups operating in Syria, Press TV reported.

Kerry made the remarks on Thursday during a joint press conference with Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir, after the ministerial meetings of the six-nation [Persian] Gulf Cooperation Council ([P]GCC) leaders on Thursday in the Bahraini capital Manama.

Kerry accused the Islamic Republic of being involved in the disruptive activities and “the destabilizing actions” in the Middle East region.

“We call on Iran to constructively join in the efforts to make peace and to help us to resolve Syria and rather than to continue to send weapons to Houthis, join in the effort… to make peace and to work toward a cessation of hostilities,” he said.

Since March 2011, the United States and its regional allies, in particular Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, have been conducting a proxy war against Syria.

Kerry open to a ‘new arrangement’ with Iran over missile tests

The United States is open to a “new arrangement” with Iran for peacefully resolving disputes such as its recent ballistic missile tests, Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday, according to The Associated Press.

Kerry’s comments came as he met with the foreign ministers of the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council to advance a series of proposals aimed at easing Arabs’ concerns about last year’s Iran nuclear deal and the warming of ties between the U.S. and Iran.

After declaring America was united with Persian Gulf countries against the Iranian missile tests, Kerry said the U.S. and its partners were telling Iran that they were “prepared to work on a new arrangement to find a peaceful solution to these issues.”

He added that Iran first had to “make it clear to everybody that they are prepared to cease these kinds of activities that raise questions about credibility and questions about intentions.” Kerry didn’t elaborate further.

    God has given us two hands, why with one hand we kill- and with the other hand we give. We help a democratic government like Mossadegh in Iran to rise- and then smash the rise there after. We go to Korea, we kill in North- and revive the South. We kill in Vietnam- and rescue Vietnamese there after. We destroy Iraq- and start humanitarian efforts there after. Now we are in new Middle East( East Asia), we help Saudi Arabia to kill with arms and more- then we want peace in so-called Middle-East that should be called East Asia since Iran is the controller at the moment. I am not Pan-Iranism – I am realist. So the Iranian people should do the same; watch your back.
