TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran has summoned Bahrain’s top diplomat in the country to relay its concerns over the unrest in the tiny island nation.

The late Thursday report by the official IRNA news agency says an official in Iran’s foreign ministry met the Bahraini charge d’affaires to express the concerns and also to relay a rejection of Bahraini claims of Iran’s meddling in Bahrain’s affairs.

Iran and Bahrain occasionally summon each other’s envoys in protest since the beginning of the unrest in the island kingdom last year, inspired by other Arab Spring uprisings.

Bahrain’s Sunni rulers claim Shiite powerhouse Iran seeks to widen its influence in the region by supporting the island’s Shiites in the unrest — a charge Iran denies.

Bahrain’s majority Shiites insist they have no political links to Iran.
