The Chief Justice of UAE, Justice Dr. Abdul Wahab Abdoul and Prominent Arab political scientist Dr. Abdulkhaleq Abdullah will lead a symposium on 28th of this month on 'Legal and political view point on the Iranian occupation of UAE's three islands'.
The symposium, organised by the Sultan Bin Zayed Centre for Culture and Information at the Abu Dhabi Theatre overlooking the Arabian Gulf, will shine light on a number of historical evidences that establish the sovereignty of UAE over the islands: Abu Musa and Greater and Lesser Tunbs. Director General of the Centre Habib Yusuf Al Sayegh said that the symposium will explain the civilised approach adopted by the country in pursuing its just cause based on a clear and unambiguous vision that has earned world's respect and appreciation for the UAE.
"UAE's historical and deep-rooted right over the Islands will not be lost by prescription", stressed Al Sayegh.
Justice Dr. Abdul Wahab Abdoul is the first UAE national to assign the position of Chief Justice in the country. Dr. Abdulkhaleq Abdullah is a professor of political science at the UAE University. He holds a PhD in Political science from Georgetown University and MA from American University in Washington D.C. â€" Emirates News Agency, WAM
