The latest conflicts in the Arab world would eventually lead to the collapse of Israel, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Monday.

"The latest conflicts will leave no chance for the Zionist regime [Israel] to survive as all the involved countries are against the occupation of Palestine," Ahmadinejad said.

He added that the Arab states should be careful not to rely on the United States and its allies, "as their ultimate aim is to save" Israel.

Very soon a new Middle East without Israel and the U.S. would emerge and the Arab nations should be aware that "the U.S. is the most unfaithful friend they can have," Ahmadinejad said.

In a statement on Sunday, the Gulf Cooperation Council accused Shiite Iran in meddling in the internal affairs in the Gulf sheikhdoms. Ahmadinejad dismissed the statement as having no legal value, claiming it was issued owing to US pressure. In several Gulf states, such as Bahrain, a Sunni minority rules over a Shiite majority.

"The U.S. wants to tarnish our relations with the Gulf states, but we tell these states that accusing Iran will not solve their problems and that we are still open for friendship," he said.

He rejected the violence used against protesters and condemned any military interference in these countries.

He said that Iran would welcome a new era of diplomatic relations with Cairo after three decades of political disputes.
