Iran stakes claim to Bahrain: Public seeks 'reunification . . .with its motherland'

ABU DHABI — For the first time, Iran has claimed ownership over a Gulf Arab state, alarming the governments of Bahrain and its neighboring states.

A senior Iranian official asserted that Bahrain was part of Iran. The official termed Bahrain a "province" of Iran and said the Shi'ite community in the Gulf Arab state wants to be governed by Teheran.

"The public demand in Bahrain is the reunification of this province with its motherland, the Islamic Iran," Hussain Shariatmadari, an adviser to the Iranian supreme leader Ali Khamenei, said.
