Iranian Armed Forces Ready For Action on Abu Musa

Gen. Ahmad Reza Pourdastan said all the Iranian armed forces are ready to take action against UAE over the strategic Abu Musa Island in the Persian Gulf if diplomatic efforts fail to convince the UAE to stop making claims to the Iranian island of Abu Musa.

This is the first time that an Iranian top commander warned and threatens UAE over this subject.

“If the sedition is not resolved through diplomacy, military forces are ready to show the prowess of the establishment to the claimant,” Ahmad Reza Pourdastan told reporters on the sidelines of a ceremony marking National Armed Forces Day.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad visited Abu Musa in last week and it has raised more conflicts between Iran and the UAE over the sovereignty on Abu Musa.

The island dominates the approach to the Strait of Hormuz, a key waterway in the Gulf through which about one-fifth of the world’s oil supply passes. Iran took control of tiny Abu Musa and two other nearby islands in 1971 after British forces left the region.
