A top Iranian military official dismissed comments made by an Emirati official about the need for arming Persian Gulf states to counter Iran, saying the political dwarfs look for criminal acts to attract attention.

“The region is gripped by a number of political dwarfs that have resorted to ‘creating crimes’ to prove themselves,” Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri said on Tuesday.

His statement came in reaction to remarks by an Emirati official who has called for plans to arm the Persian Gulf states with destructive weapons to confront the Islamic Republic.

While the humanity has an aversion to war and violence, particularly of the unconventional weapons, certain parties are still seeking to use such weaponry against the others.

Iran has always voiced strong opposition to weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), saying they have no place in Tehran’s defensive doctrine and run counter to its tenets.

In 2005, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei issued a fatwa forbidding the production, stockpiling and use of nuclear weapons, Tasnim reported.
