Following the baseless claims of the Arab League against the Islamic Republic of Iran, Amir Saeed Iravani, the ambassador and permanent representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations, has sent a letter to the Security Council rejecting the Arab countries' fake claims.

In this letter on Saturday local time, Iran’s Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the United Nations Amir Saeed Iravani strongly condemned and categorically rejected the accusations leveled against the country in a declaration by the Arab League, saying the issue raised by the Bahraini representative to the UN regarding Iranian Islands as per that declaration is an obvious and unfair interference in the internal affairs of the Islamic Republic.  

This letter adds: "This action not only contradicts the spirit of good neighborliness but is also a clear violation of the fundamental principles of international law and the UN Charter, especially the principles of sovereign equality and non-interference in countries' internal affairs.

Iravani said: "The Islamic Republic of Iran once again asserts its indisputable sovereignty over the Iranian islands of Abu Musa and the Greater and Lesser Tunbs in the Persian Gulf."

He emphasized that the Islamic Republic of Iran also strongly condemned the use of a fake name for the Persian Gulf in paragraphs 11 and 16 of the aforementioned statement and considered it unacceptable.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has emphasized that "Persian Gulf" is the only legal and valid geographic name that has been used since ancient times. All the world's authoritative cartographic organizations also recognize and respect this gulf as the "Persian Gulf".
