UAE urges Iran to stop funding terror, intervening in states' affairs

UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan urged Iran to stop interfering in other states' domestic affairs, and funding terrorist groups, Gulf News reported.

This came during the 46th session of the Foreign Ministers’ Conference of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) at Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi on Friday.

“We reiterate our demands to our neighbor Iran to review its policy and to stop interference in the affairs of states, supporting groups that fuel conflicts and to stop supporting, financing and arming terrorist organizations that clearly violate our [OIC] charter, the charter of the United Nations and our Islamic values,” Sheikh Abdullah stated.

Representing the Arab Group, Adel al-Jubeir, Saudi State Minister for Foreign Affairs, said Iran continues to commit terrorist activities, flaring up sectarian sedition, supporting terrorism and occupying three UAE islands.

Jubeir reaffirmed UAE’s sovereignty over the three islands of Greater, Lesser Tunbs and Abu Musa, and reiterated the Arab Group’s support for all peaceful attempts and measures taken by the UAE to ensure its sovereignty over the occupied islands.
