Iran: Protest against UAE claims on Persian Gulf

Stop bullying the UAE!
Abu Musa and the two Tunbs belong to the UAE!

Hundreds of Tehrani residents held a gathering in front of the United Arab Emirates embassy in Tehran, on Friday to protest against the recent moves by the UAE officials. (Mathaba)

The gathering was held in response to repetition of claims by the UAE on possession of the three Iranian islands in the Persian Gulf, the Greater and Lesser Tunbs and Abu Mussa, and forging the name of the Persian Gulf.By chanting slogans such as 'Persian Gulf will remain Persian Gulf for ever' and 'Persian Gulf belongs to the Iranians', the ralliers showed their wrath towards the unfounded assertions by the UAE authorities.The Persian Gulf with its God-granted rich resources has been playing a decisive role in Iran's economic and social development in the past 1,400 years.The Persian Gulf is the world's third biggest gulf, after Mexican and Hudson gulfs. --IRNA
