Tehran, YJC. Marziyeh Afkham, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, wished a peaceful New Year for all nations while speaking at a press conference in Tehran on Wednesday.

In relation to Britain's decision to set up military bases in Bahrain, Afkham asserted that regional security should be maintained only through cooperation among the entire regional countries.

The Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said that London's act reminds one of all of its contradictory policies during its long years of colonial rule.

She also dismissed allegations about an official lobbying on oil prices with Saudi Arabia.

Pointing out that fluctuations have always been a feature of the oil market, she stressed that the coincidence of certain political developments in the region and the declining oil prices has given rise to speculations as to the influence of political developments regarding oil depreciation.

She further said talks about the influence of a certain country on the current downward trend in oil prices are just exaggerations.

Afkham also conveyed Iran's support for any practical schemes which would meet the needs of the Syrian nation.

Elsewhere in her remarks, the foreign ministry spokeswoman urged the Bahraini government to act according to the realities that prevail the Arab country.

She expressed concern about the recent arrest of Bahrain's Al Wifaq secretary general and urged the Bahraini government to heed the nation's demands.
