GCC: Gulf is Arab

Interior ministers of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) today said the Persian Gulf did not exclusively belong to Iran and is in fact Arab.

"The Gulf is Arab and it will remain as it is," the ministers said in a statement after a meeting in Abu Dhabi [AFP, 3 May].

The GCC statement came in response to remarks made on Saturday by the chief of staff of Iran’s armed forces, Maj. Gen. Hassan Firouzabadi, saying “Persian Gulf had belonged to Iran forever.”

These people are so stupid. If it will remain as it is, then it will remain the Persian Gulf.

The GCC are fools. The term "Persian Gulf" is officially recognized and accepted internationally. Iran does not need to remind Arabs of that!

The last Shah of Iran in my humble opinion sums up this ongoing dispute perfectly
