UAE urges clear Arab stand on threats against Iraq

posted on 05/03/2002: 1517 views


The UAE has called for a clear Arab position towards threats by the United States and other Western powers to attack Iraq on the grounds it possesses weapons of mass destruction.



Sheikh Sultan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, said preparations for a possible strike against Iraq "pose great dangers which could lead to unimaginable repercussions on regional and global security."



"There should be a clear Arab stand in this respect," he told reporters after receiving participants in a two-day seminar on dialogue among civilisations. "Is it in the interest of the Arab world that Iraq is destroyed? There should be a clear policy towards Iraq and we should think well of the dangerous consequences to the Arab national security if there is any military operation against the Iraqi people."



Sheikh Sultan urged Arab states to begin discussing threats of an attack against Iraq and "adopt a common stand in this regard." "Arab states are called upon to identify the right approach for their future positions and adopt a new pan-Arab policy that will allow them to have a dialogue with others," he said. "They should also chalk out a new policy to face the developments in the Middle East. The Arab situation in this regard needs to be clarified because it is foggy." Sheikh Sultan termed the Palestinian problem the central Arab cause and said a new approach is needed to deal with it. (The Gulf News)
