TEHRAN, May 4 (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast in a meeting with Cuban Deputy Foreign Minister Marcus Rodriguez in Havana blasted the pressures exerted by the US on independent countries, and said the resistance shown by these countries has foiled Washington's plots and perplexed American politicians.
Mehman-Parast said the US is so confused that it cannot work out a proper policy "and its contradictory attitudes displays the confusion in its arrogant policies".

He stressed that the arrogant powers, particularly the US, feel that their interests are endangered by the regional uprisings, specially considering that independence from the western and US policies is among the main demands raised by the regional nations in their uprisings against their US-backed regimes.

He further lambasted the West for its pressures on the independent states, and said, "The US and the western countries want to pressure the independent states to make them give up their independence."

During the meeting, Rodriguez referred to the recent developments in the Middle-East and North Africa, and said, "In these developments, the US and the NATO seem to have dangerous plots for the regional nations and they want to establish controlled democracies in the region."

Earlier this month, Chief of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firouzabadi had mentioned that the downfall of tyrannical rulers in the region has frightened Israel as its existence totally depends on the approval and cooperation of such regional dictators.

"Today, the Zionist regime is worried about the ouster of dictators in the region since this regime came into existence as a result of their approval," Firouzabadi said.

"If any other government rises in any of these regional countries through the will of the people, certainly it will not ally with Israel.

"Therefore today the ascot tie around the Americans' neck has become tighter," he added.

Political observers believe that people's uprisings in Egypt, Tunisia, Bahrain, Jordan, Yemen and Libya are the result of growing "Islamic awakening" in the Middle-Eastern countries.

People in the Middle-East now believe that the western approach to the ongoing revolutions in these countries has unveiled the true nature of the West's stance on democracy.

The United States and certain other western countries have adopted a double-standard approach towards the popular protests against the dictatorial regimes in the region.

Political observers also believe that the recent uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Bahrain and Jordan are the result of America's double standards in the Middle-East and its biased policies against different nations.
