Former Iranian Minister of Defense IRGC General Ahmad Vahidi and member of the Expedience Council said that if Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Bahrain join an alliance against Iran together with Israel, this will bring "catastrophic consequences" upon them. He made his remarks in an interview that aired on Russia Today TV on March 3, 2021. General Vahidi said that it is unlikely that they will be "so stupid" as to do so because they do not have the capabilities to face Iran.

Ahmad Vahidi: "Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain do not have the capabilities to face Iran. It is unlikely that they would be so stupid as to join an alliance against us with the Zionist entity. If they do join such an alliance, they will endure very powerful blows. We hope that they do not sink any further into the Israeli quagmire, because joining such an alliance would bring catastrophic consequences upon them."
