GCC must stop interfering in Iran affairs: Foreign Ministry

Iran says the [Persian] Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) must stop leveling groundless allegations against Tehran, saying such claims would not change the reality about the Islamic Republic's sovereignty over its three islands in the Persian Gulf.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi made the comments in reaction to the final declaration of the 37th annual summit of the GCC, comprising Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar and Bahrain, in the Bahraini capital of Manama.

The islands of the Greater Tunb, Lesser Tunb and Abu Musa are an inseparable part of the Iranian territory. Repetition of baseless claims will have no impact on our country's territorial integrity and its sovereignty over these islands, Qassemi said.

Instead of rehashing repeated and baseless accusations, the [Persian] Gulf Cooperation Council must stop interfering in the internal affairs of the Islamic Republic, including efforts by certain members to create sectarian and religious strife, he added.
