Iran blasted the Arab League statement on the three Iranian islands as ‘unfounded and baseless’.
"Iran’s sovereignty over the three Iranian islands of Abu Musa, the Greater Tunb and the Lesser Tunb is undeniable and everlasting. Such statements and claims which are sheer lie cannot damage the sovereignty,” said Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi.
Elsewhere, regarding repeating futile allegations that Iran is meddling in internal affairs of Arab countries, he said, "The Islamic Republic of Iran is not interfering in internal affairs of any country and basically it does feel any need to do that.”
He added that such baseless allegations raised by certain countries show they are laying the blames on others to get out of the quagmire they made for themselves.
