Iran Insists On Sovereignty Over Three Islands

Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman said today that Iran insists on its sovereignty over the three islands of Abu Moussa and the Greater and Lesser Tunbs.

“The islands’ ownership is not a negotiable issue or an issue to be bargained,” Mohammad Ali Hosseini said.

The GCC countries have declared the three islands an integral part of UAE. The Kuwaiti foreign minister speaking at UN General Assembly reiterated this position and said the islands of Greater Tunb, Lesser Tunb, and Abu Moussa belong to the UAE and not to Iran.
