Arab summit calls for the end of Iran's occupation of UAE islands

posted on 29/03/2002: 649 views


Arab leaders re-iterated here today their support for the UAE sovereignty over its three Islands of Abu Musa and Greater and Lesser Tunbs. They also re-iterated their support for the UAE's peaceful means to regain its islands. In their final communiqué, the Arab leaders called on Iran to end its occupation of the islands and to pursue peaceful means to end the dispute based on international law or referring the issue to the International Court of Justice. They also charged the Arab League Secretary general to follow up the issue and present a report to the coming Arab summit in this regard.



The Arab summit in Beirut also unanimously endorsed a Saudi-inspired plan for Middle East peace, offering Israel normal ties and full peace in exchange for complete withdrawal from occupied Arab land. A Beirut Declaration, read by Lebanon's Culture Minister Ghassan Salameh near the close of the two-day meeting, embraced the plan proposed by Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Abdullah. It demanded the lifting of UN sanctions on Iraq imposed for its 1990 invasion of Kuwait and rejected any attack on Iraq. The declaration said Israel must also accept a Palestinian state and agree to a just solution to the Palestinian refugee problem in line with a 1948 UN resolution that calls for them to be repatriated or compensated.



In return the Arab countries would consider the Arab-Israeli conflict ended and enter into a peace agreement with Israel (and) establish normal relations with Israel in the context of this comprehensive peace. The document says. The Beirut Declaration welcomed Iraq's confirmation to respect the independence, sovereignty and security of the state of Kuwait and guarantee its safety and unity to avoid anything that might cause a repetition of what happened in 1990.
