United Arab Emirates Minister of State for Foreign Affairs
Anwar Gargash slammed Iran on Monday for its ongoing occupation of its Greater
and Lesser Tunbs and Abu Musa islands, Asharq Al-Awsat reported.
In a series of tweets, Gargash said that the occupation is indicative of its policy in the Arab Gulf region.
“Tehran is embarrassing itself at every international forum because its occupation remains illegal, illegitimate and unrecognized,” he added, saying that the UAE is seeking a peaceful resolution of this issue through dialogue.
Moreover, Gargash remarked that Iran’s policy of “occupation and use of force does not lead to international legitimacy.”
