Islands issue to be resolved peacefully, says Murr (Wam) / 18 March 2014 FNC Speaker says the UAE has adopted a foreign policy based on certain principles such as tolerance and acceptance of various people and their cultures. Mohammed Ahmed Al Murr, Speaker of the Federal National Council (FNC), has affirmed that the UAE, since its establishment, has adopted a foreign policy based on certain principles such as tolerance and acceptance of various people and their cultures. These values, he said, contribute to stability, development and international peace. Al Murr said this comes out of the country’s conviction that achieving international peace is connected with the establishment of ties and communication with various countries in accordance with rules of international law and mutual dialogue. This, he said, promotes understanding, friendship and rapprochement, in addition to respect of neighbourhood, countries’ sovereignty and resolving conflicts through peaceful means. “According to this principle, we issued our constant calls to resolve conflicts with Iran over its occupation of the three UAE islands — Abu Musa and Greater and Lesser Tunbs — through peaceful and negotiable means or international arbitration.” He was speaking at the 130th Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union in Geneva.
