The United States intimidates Persian Gulf Arab countries to sell its weapons and create military bases in the region, said Alaeddin Boroujerdi, a member of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Committee.

Boroujerdi said that Washington is aware of the Persian Gulf Arab countries’ wealth and since these countries suffer from weak security, Washington scares them, establishes military bases and sells its weapons to these countries, Boroujerdi told IRNA on Monday.

During his presidential campaign, Trump had frankly described Saudi Arabia as "a dairy cow" which would be slaughtered when its milk runs out, Boroujerdi said.

Saudi Arabia and some other Arab countries have bought tens of billions of dollars arms from the US in recent years, he said, adding, “Therefore, the US policy is the one that has been always in place, i.e. seeking their own economic objectives, but this has been more prominent in the Trump era.”
