Three PG Islands Inseparable Part of Iran Soil
Thursday, June 07, 2012
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast has rejected claims by the [Persian] Gulf Cooperation Council ([P]GCC) about the three Iranian islands of Abu Musa, the Greater Tunb and the Lesser Tunb.
The three islands have been and will remain an inseparable part of the Islamic Republic soil, Mehmanparast said.
Mehmanparast further criticized the recent remarks by Saudi Foreign Minister Saud Al-Faisal about Iran in which the Arab official described the Iranian nuclear energy program as “dangerous”.
“These remarks are not in line with the collective interests of the people of the region and are not a logical criterion for regional developments,” Mehmanparast said.
Mehmanparast added that Iran's nuclear energy activities are “completely transparent and compliant with the international regulations and within the framework of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).”
“The Islamic Republic insists on its incontrovertible rights based on the NPT (Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty),” he added.
