Gulf council rejects Iran move on UAE island

posted on 15/03/2006: 765 views

Riyadh: Foreign ministers of the Gulf states have rejected Iranian plans to build a memorial on Abu Musa island. Terming Tehran's proposed move as provocative, the ministers said at a meeting in Riyadh that it would not help solve the dispute between Iran and the UAE. Foreign Minister Rashid Abdullah led the UAE's delegation to the ministerial meeting.

At the conclusion of the 94th session of the GCC foreign ministers meeting in Riyadh on Sunday, the delegates renewed their support for the UAE's territorial rights to the three islands. The council also expressed regret over the lack of progress in talks with Iran over the issue. The ministers said this could affect the region's security and stability and called for continued peaceful attempts to ensure the UAE gets back its rights to the three islands.

The council also renewed its calls on Iran to respond to the efforts being made by the UAE and the international community to solve the dispute through negotiations or through the International Court of Justice. Hamad Al Attiya, Secretary-General of the council, said the six Gulf states have adopted a slew of practical steps toward enabling their citizens to travel within the region by using identity cards instead of passports.
