Iranian Foreign Ministry Condemns PGCC's Statement on Persian Gulf Islands

The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Nasser Kan'ani, has strongly denounced the recent statement issued by the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) regarding Iran's trio islands in the Persian Gulf.

Iran (IMNA) - Kan'ani expressed Iran's firm stance, emphasizing that any claims over Abu Musa, Greater Tunb, and Lesser Tunb are considered interference in Iran's internal territory, sovereignty, and territorial integrity. He expressed regret over parts of the final statement from the 44th PGCC session involving the Islamic Republic of Iran, rejecting it as unacceptable. Iran reaffirms that these islands are an integral and perpetual part of its territory, condemning any claims made over them.

In a recent statement, Kan'ani, an Iranian official, emphasized Iran's missile capabilities within a transparent military framework aimed at deterrence and national security. Kan'ani identified the military presence of non-regional actors and the Zionist regime as genuine threats to regional stability. He stated, "The illogical military presence of non-regional actors and the Zionist regime poses a real threat to regional security, serving as the primary source of insecurity and threats to Islamic countries and regional stability."

Furthermore, Kan'ani underscored Iran's commitment to combatting terrorism and enhancing maritime security. He highlighted that the Islamic Republic of Iran consistently abides by its international obligations and laws, operating within the framework of rights and duties. Additionally, Iran continues to engage in constructive cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) based on the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT).

In the realm of energy, the Islamic Republic of Iran has consistently advocated for amicable and constructive collaboration. One such example is the Arash energy field within the region, where Iran has engaged in bilateral negotiations with the Kuwaiti government, taking into account previous negotiation records. Kan'ani, a representative, emphasized that regional cooperation can thrive when behaviors are driven by mutual interests and shared values.

Highlighting Iran's unwavering dedication to bolstering neighborly relations founded on respect and non-interference in internal matters, Kan'ani reaffirmed Iran's commitment to promoting a stable, secure, and prosperous region. This commitment entails fostering collaboration while resisting foreign interventions.
