UAE will pursue diplomatic channels
Gargash tells Iran to engage in talks and refrain from using arrogant language
Dr Anwar Mohammad Gargash, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, has called on Iran to enter into negotiations with the UAE over the three UAE islands, occupied by Iran, and to refrain from using arrogant language.
"The UAE today is not that small baby which was born on 2nd December 1971, rather it's a key state with huge potentials," Dr Gargash said, calling on Iran to be a mature state and to take into consideration "neighbour relationships that link the two countries."
“The visit was conducted at a time when the two countries reached an understanding on negotiation over the islands. After arduous efforts for months, the two sides agreed that it was time to solve the problem. They even went further with the UAE naming its negotiator and Iran assigning senior adviser to Ahmadinejad to the mission”
Dr Anwar Mohammad Gargash, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs
"We will remain neighbours forever despite our differences," the minister told Dubai TV.
The UAE, he said, is a wise, respectable state adopting civilised approaches to restore its rights.
"We are following a long-patience policy."
The minister's statement came within the UAE's reaction to the recent visit made by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Abu Mousa Island, which Iran occupied along with Greater and Lesser Tunbs, since 1971 on the eve of the birth of the UAE Federation.
Dr Gargash unveiled in an interview with Dubai TV, which will be broadcast today evening, that the UAE will adopt a new political strategy in handing the issue of its occupied islands to press for its demands through peaceful diplomatic channels under the umbrella of the international law.
Mulling all options
"We are mulling all possible options before us in this respect," he said, adding that the next phase will see an intensive drive for UAE diplomacy.
He emphasised that it's not in the interest of either UAE or Iran to escalate the situation because solution of a bilateral problem will not be reached through provocative statements.
Dr Gargash noted that UAE's firm and decisive reaction to the Iranian violation of its sovereignty has nothing to do with what the Iranians were talking about a foreign move.
"We are fed up with the record of foreign pressure which the Iranians kept parroting."
The UAE's reaction was strong, he went on to say, because Ahmadinejad's visit to Abu Mousa was an "unprecedented development".
"It is the first time an Iranian president pays a visit to our occupied islands".
The visit, he said, has circumvented all efforts to initiate bilateral negotiations over a whole year.
The minister said the UAE was shocked by Ahmadinejad's visit to Abu Mousa island, which undermined Tehran's credibility.
He attributed the UAE's surprise to the fact that "the visit was conducted at a time when the two countries reached an understanding on negotiation over the islands. After arduous efforts for months, the two sides agreed that it was time to solve the problem. They even went further with the UAE naming its negotiator and Iran assigning senior adviser to Ahmadinejad to the mission."
Evidence of ownership
Dr Gargash expressed his confidence at the solidity of the UAE historic and legal attitude because "it is based on realistic and tangible historic evidence that prove the UAE's ownership of the islands."
The UAE stands ready to risk its historic and legal facts and win or lose at the International Court of Justice.
Refuting any sense of reality about Iran's allegations of having historic facts confirming their ownership of the islands, Dr Gargash said, "He who has such facts is supposed to accept international arbitration."
Ajman streets renamed after islands
His Highness Shaikh Humaid Bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Ruler of Ajman and Member of Supreme Council, has ordered renaming three main streets in the emirate of Ajman after the three UAE occupied Islands.
In accordance with the order, Abu Mousa Street will be in Mushairif district, the Greater Tunb in Al Jurf district and the Lesser Tunb in Al Humaidiya district. The move reflects the UAE's identity over the occupied islands and keenness by the Ajman Ruler to inculcate them in Emirati citizens.
Shaikh Rashid Bin Humaid Bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Chairman of Ajman Municipality and Planning Department, has instructed the engineering affairs section at the civic body to implement the directives of the Ruler of Ajman to rename the three main streets.
Arab foreign ministers to discuss Ahmadinejad visit
Implications of the recent visit made by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to the UAE's Island of Abu Mousa will top the agenda of the extraordinary meeting of the Arab foreign ministers scheduled on Thursday, a senior Arab League official announced yesterday. Deputy Secretary General of Arab League Ahmad Bin Heli said that the item (Ahmadinejad's visit to Abu Mousa) was included in the agenda of the emergency meeting of Arab foreign ministers so as to take a common Arab stance in that regard.
Kuwait will chair the meeting which will also look into the latest developments in Syria and Sudan.

UAE renews call to Iran
Cabinet reaffirms ties and urges resolution of islands issue through negotiations
The UAE Cabinet, chaired by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, reaffirmed the historic relations between the UAE and Iran and the desire of the country to strengthen these relations and develop them for the good of the two neighbourly countries. The Cabinet stated that this would promote the stability of the region.
Saying that the UAE values these relations, the Cabinet emphasised the need to solve the issue of the three Emirati islands of Abu Mousa and Greater and Lesser Tunbs, noting, at the same time, that it has expressed its desire that the issue should be resolved through negotiations or through the framework of international law.
The Cabinet said the call by the UAE for a solution of the issue through bilateral negotiations or through the International Court of Justice had been made because of this desire. The Cabinet reaffirmed that the UAE's call was evidence of its belief in the necessity for a serious and balanced treatment of the issue with its friendly neighbour, Iran. This arises out of its desire to maintain this important relationship and to foster future prospects, through a resolution of the causes of this dispute that tarnishes the historical relationship between the peoples and countries of the region.
Foreign Minister Shaikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan earlier urged Iran to listen to reason, extending a similar invitation to Tehran to join negotiations over the three islands occupied by Iran since 1971 or take the issue to international arbitration.
Shaikh Abdullah stressed the importance of maritime security in the Gulf as "40 per cent of the world's energy literally passes through the three islands near the mouth of the strategic Strait of Hormuz."
The foreign minister said the Iranian president's visit will not change historical and legal facts proving the UAE's sovereignty over its three islands.
The UAE is committed to the agreement between the two countries to create an appropriate environment for a joint solution which enhances security and stability in the Gulf, according to a note handed to the Iranian envoy to the UAE.
gulfnews : UAE renews call to Iran
So UAE after failing terribly at UNSC, are hoping Iran would agree for ICJ, run by US and its alies? How stupid do you think they are?
Oh, and UAE is not in position to renew friendly relationships with Iran, US wont let them. As soon as UAE turns away from US, their regime would be instantly replaced by pro-US puppets.
