Arab Summit in Doha Destined to Succeed
Shaikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE Foreign Minister, expresses optimism about the success of the Arab summit to be held in Doha on March 30.

UAE Foreign Minister HH Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, said on March 28 that the forthcoming 21st Arab Summit in Doha would succeed, as deliberations would be transparent in order to achieve a comprehensive Arab reconciliation, leading to the Arab solidarity.

He told Kuwait News Agency (Kuna) and Kuwait TV in a statement after the first session of the Arab Foreign Ministers' preparatory meeting that Arab countries' differences over different issues is natural, indicating that the differences would be overcome and ironed out through certain arrangements.

Sheikh Abdullah noted that "if the differences remain unsettled, they will lead to more tensions in the Arab relations and harm Arab nationals..

On the three UAE Islands occupied by Iran, he said that there was a unified Arab stance, backing the UAE sovereignty over the Islands, adding that the UAE position to end the Iranian occupation of the three Islands amicably through dialogue or the International Court of Justice (ICJ) "did not change and is firm,"Sheikh Abdullah underscored that he was hoping the Iranian side would consider the UAE view of settling the issue. "It is a serious UAE and Arab demand."

He reiterated that the UAE's demand "is legal and legitimate,"adding that if the Iranians were sure of their legal position, then the two parties could go to the ICJ, where its verdict will decide the sovereignty over the Islands.(Emirates News Agency, WAM)
