Iran’s sovereignty over 3 Islands irrefutable, ever-lasting: FM spox

Politics - Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said Iran’s sovereignty over the three Persian Gulf islands of the Abu Musa, the Greater Tunb and the Lesser Tunb is an irrefutable and a perpetual fact.

Qasemi described as 'baseless' the repeated allegations aboit the three Iranian islands raised in the final statement of the 147th Arab League Council's ministerial meeting on March 7.

“Such allegations and entirely false statements would not cause any damage to Iran’s sovereignty over the three islands,' said the spokesman.

On repeating the insubstantial allegation regarding Iran’s interference in the internal affairs of certain Arab countries in the region, Qasemi said that the Islamic Republic of Iran has never interfered in internal affairs of any foreign country and essentially does not feel it needs to do so.

“Basically, it is not necessary for Iran to interfere in internal affairs of Arab countries. Pinning such unfounded and irrelevant charges on Iran is an unsafe and experienced refuge to put the blame of their internal problems on Iran and is a futile effort to escape a quagmire created by those countries” which is now working against them, he added.

Qasemi advised the Arab League to pay due attention not to forget its main goals by spending its time and money on repeating baseless claims.
