Iran dismisses allegations raised in PGCC statement

Rejecting the repetitious and groundless allegations that the council has leveled against Iran, Khatibzadeh said that such statements show that some members of the PGCC have kept their unconstructive and inappropriate attitudes towards Iran.

“There were expectations that following the recent diplomatic measures and moves between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the PGCC, we would witness the council’s new stance on regional cooperation,” he added.

The spokesman called on a few PGCC members that keep hiding behind the council and issue their unconstructive stances in the name of the PGCC to reconsider their views and approaches about regional issues and replace the repetitious allegations with a path to cooperation.

It’s most unfortunate that the continuation of the war on Yemen, escalation of foreign militarism, and presence of the Zionist regime as a destructive element have threatened security and stability of the region, he noted, voicing Iran’s concern about those issues.

The Islamic Republic of Iran would not tolerate any interference in its peaceful nuclear program, its defense and missile program, and the affairs relating to its military and deterrent defense policies, Khatibzadeh underlined.

Asserting Iran’s sovereignty over three Persian Gulf islands, he highlighted that the Greater Tunb, the Lesser Tunb, and Abu Musa are an integral part of Iran’s territory forever.

The spokesman went on to say that the Islamic Republic of Iran slams any claim over those islands as interference in its internal affairs and territorial sovereignty, and strongly condemns it.

All of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s measures on those islands have been taken in line with the inalienable rights and under the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, he reiterated.

He categorically rejected the interventionist comments about the islands and emphasized that such allegations would not affect legal and historical realities.

According to its strategic view and principled policies, the new administration of the Islamic Republic of Iran always considers the solution to regional problems to be based upon interaction and cooperation with the neighbors, and welcomes the compelling initiatives for the promotion of relations based on international principles and regulations, he concluded.
