WANA (May 21) – In the statement of the 32nd Arab League summit in Jeddah, the issue of Iran and the three Iranian islands was not mentioned. However, in the side resolutions of this meeting, claims and accusations were raised against Iran and the Iranian islands, which brought the reaction of the spokesperson of the Iranian Foreign Ministry.


Naser Kanani, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman, said: “We expected the Arab Union to take a positive step towards consolidating, peace and strengthening convergence by avoiding some repeated claims. All actions of Iran carried out in line with the exercise of sovereignty over its territory, and any claims in this regard are rejected.”
