Iran Reiterates Position on Three Islands

Iran’s permanent mission to the UN said in a letter to the Security Council that the islands of Abu Musa, Greater Tunb and Lesser Tunb are “inseparable part of Iranian territory.” The letter also said that the visit by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Abu Musa on 11 April was in line with “Iran’s sovereign rights and the principles of its territorial integrity.

The UAE has laid claims over the three islands and regarded Ahmadinejad’s visit to Abu Musa as a violation of its territorial sovereignty. In the letter to the Security Council, Iran called for “constructive” talks with UAE to clear “misunderstandings” over the islands. [IRNA/Press TV, 21 April].

Mr Uskowi can we please discuss the despicable act of the so called 50 year old Iranian "diplomat"in Brazil when he molested 9 to 15 year old girls at a local swimming pool.
While at the same time the regime arrests people at a park in Tehran playing with water pistols.
This Islamic fascist theocracy has blackened the faces of Iranians worldwide.
