Iran's Foreign Ministry on Sunday criticized the United States military presence in the region and slammed a US-led military exercise due to begin in the Persian Gulf, urging nations in the area to set up their own regional security arrangement. Ships from the US and five other countries are due to interdict a British vessel in the Persian Gulf on Monday in a mock interception of dangerous weapons technology. For the first time, an Arab nation, Bahrain, will participate in an exercise under the three-year-old proliferation security initiative. "We do not consider this exercise appropriate," Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini told reporters in Teheran.
