Iran Reiterates Sovereignty over 3 PG Islands

A008708014.jpgTEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Mohammad Ali Hosseini here on Sunday underlined Tehran’s sovereignty over the three Persian Gulf islands of the Greater and the Lesser Tunbs and Abu Musa, reiterating that the islands are inseparable part of Iranian territory.

He strongly refuted statement made by Arab League chief Amr Mousa that he put on the agenda of Summit of Arab Leaders the misunderstanding between Iran and the United Arab Emirates.

Hosseini said such allegations are regarded as interference in Iran’s domestic affairs.

Interfering of third parties in a misunderstanding between Iran and UAE which could be resolved through talks is not helpful, he underlined.

Hosseini highlighted the existing problems faced by the Muslim world mainly in the Middle East, continued atrocities of the Zionist regime in Gaza, wide scale attacks to Islamic identities, and said that raising irrelevant and unreal issues only deviates the summit and is beyond its credit.

It is necessary for all countries to adopt an actual stand in dealing with historical realities in the region and help forge unity and solidarity in the region, Hosseini underlined.

21st Arab Summit wound up on Sunday after one week of activities in the capital city of Damascus.
