France advised not to make interfering comments over Iran's affairs

In a tweet, Iran condemned France's use of a misnomer for the Persian Gulf, urging the French government to stop from making interfering comments and hurling charges against the Islamic Republic.

Iran (IMNA) - On Sunday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kan'ani issued a comment on Twitter in response to the French Foreign Ministry's tweet, in which Iran was accused of being a "source of instability" in "the Gulf" and West Asia.

"If the Persian Gulf is in question, then its correct, historical, and international name must be used," Kan'ani wrote in Persian.

“Although France is located thousands of kilometers away from the Persian Gulf region, it is recommended against making remarks that may be seen as an act of involvement.”

The historical origins of the Persian Gulf have been the subject of several recent international scientific conferences.

Nearly all academic researchers from renowned institutions throughout the world concur that the body of water has been referred to as the Persian Gulf throughout history.

However, certain regional nations and Western newspapers continue to misrepresent historical facts by leaving out the word "Persian" or by using an incorrect name.

The 10th of Ordibehesht, second month of the Persian calendar, which occurs on April 30, is when Iranians annually celebrate Persian Gulf Day. The occasion is the anniversary of Shah Abbas I of Persia's victorious military operation in 1622, which drove the Portuguese navy from the Strait of Hormuz.
