While reacting to 149th statement of foreign ministers of Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC), Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman, Saeed Khatibzadeh stressed that islands of Abu Musa, Greater and Lesser Tunbs definitely belong to Iran.
“Repetitive statements made in this regard will never change anything regarding possession of the Iran over these islands,” he said.
Khatibzadeh went on to say that “We reject any interference in its peaceful nuclear and missile program as well as issues related to its deterrent defense policies.”
“The priority of current administration is to strengthen cooperation and develop relations with all neighbors without foreign interference,” he added.
Finally, he said “Persian Gulf Cooperation Council should know that unacceptable requests, false accusations against Iran and repeated allegations are not the solution to these problems,” and added “There are rare countries as PGCC’s member states which are trying to impose their anti-Iranian views.”
