Iran Press News: Translation by Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzzi
Al Arab Al Yawm Newspaper in Jordan quoted Marwan Mo'asher, Deputy Prime Minister and spokesman for the government of Jordan who once again stressed the issue of the Islamic Republic's continued manipulation in Iraq, warning about the formation of the Shiite Crescent (Iraq, Lebanon & Syria) in the region. He said that the government of Jordan is strictly against the intrusion and encroachment of any of Iraq's neighboring countries, including the Islamic Republic, in Iraq's internal matters.

Mr. Mo'asher reiterated the King of Jordan's previous warning on the development of the Shiite crescent in the region and underlined the Saudi Foreign Minister, Prince Saud Faisal's comments regarding the same matter.

King Abdollah had previously warned that Tehran's regime is making every effort to create the Shiite crescent in the region, in order to have a sphere of countries that resemble the Islamic Republic.
