Iran sends letter to UN over 3 Persian Gulf islands

Tehran, April 7, IRNA - Iran has sent a letter to the United Nations about its ownership of the three Iranian islands in the Persian Gulf region, a senior Foreign Ministry official said on Monday.

Speaking to reporters at his weekly press conference, spokesman for the Foreign Ministry, Mohammad-Ali Hosseini, announced the above while commenting on a recent claim of the United Arab Emirates officials over the three islands of the Greater Tunb, the Lesser Tunb and Abu Mousa.

"Relaying on historical documents, Iran has always given a documented, firm and logical response to those claims," Hosseini said.

He stressed that any claim over the three Iranian islands "lacks logical, historical and geographical bases."
