The non-nuclear case against Iran: CEASE THE OCCUPATION of ABU MUSA!

4/5/2008--Government Spokesman Gholam-Hossein Elham : "The three islands are inseparable part of Iran"'s not true and it has been proved time and time again!
The international community in general and the Gulf States in particular have been asking Iran for more than a decade now to cease the illegal occupation of the three islands of Abu Musa and the Tunbs!
And with relentless hypocrisy and disregard of international law, the Iranians keep on giving us their weekly lesson of taqqiya (i.e. a bunch of lies!).


4/5/2008 IRNA

Government Spokesman Gholam-Hossein Elham said on Saturday that three Iranian islands in the Persian Gulf are inseparable part of Iranian territory.

Elham made the remarks in his weekly press conference in response to the alleged claims raised by the UAE in the Arab summit in Damascus over the Iranian islands.

There is no doubt that these three islands belong to Iran, Elham underlined.

Iran's claim is supported by legal and authentic documents proving the country's ownership which have been put at the disposal of the United Nations, he said.

Iran has established good relations with Arab countries in the region through mutual dialogue and understanding and the current ties with these countries including the UAE indicates that Iran has very high potentialities to help restore security, peace and stability to the region, Elham said.

Such stands and moves are masterminded by the US which seeks to create an insecure atmosphere to promote Islamophobia in the region, he said.

Irrespective of such futile moves, Iran and the UAE are determined to broaden mutual ties and the two countries' joint economic commission meeting is expected to be held by the end of this week, Elham said.


AIPU ( The Arab Inter-Parliamentary Union) reiterates UAE's sovereignty over isles

15/03/2008-Erbil -

The Arab Inter-Parliamentary Union (AIPU) has reiterated the right of the United Arab Emirates for sovereignty over its three islands of Greater Tunb, Lesser Tunb and Abu Musa, occupied by Iran.

In the final communique issued at the end of its 13th meeting in Erbil, the AIPU also expressed support to the approach adopted by UAE to regain sovereignty over its three islands. The UAE delegation, headed by Speaker of the Federal National Council Abdul Aziz Abullah Al Ghurarir, expressed dismay over the reservations voiced by Iraqi delegation about the issue of UAE's islands, occupied by Iran. "We object to that reservation. The last meeting of the Council of Arab Foreign Ministers, held on March 6, had stressed UAE's sovereignty over its occupied islands.

The Iraqi Foreign Minister was present during the meeting and condoned UAE's demand about the islands," Al Ghurair said. AIPU's Secretary General Nouruddin Bushukooj said the final communique called on Iran to translate its desire to strengthen ties with Arab countries into tangible steps by responding to UAE's call for resolving the issue via peaceful means either through direct negotiations or by referring the dispute to the International Court of Justice.

The communique also condemned Iranian government's move to build houses for its citizens in the islands in an attempt to change their demographic structure. It also deplored Iranian military exercises in the UAE island's territorial waters, airspace, continental shelf and exclusive economic zones. President Jalal Talabani of Iraq addressed the meeting's concluding session and reiterated the right of the United Arab Emirates for sovereignty over its three islands occupied by Iran. He also expressed Iraq's support to UAE's right in its islands. "The UAE has always stood by Iraq during crises and difficult times. The Iraqi delegation should have supported UAE's right in its islands," Al Ghurair commented. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
