China drängt VAE und Iran den Inselstreit beizulegen

June 4, 2024 -
A political row is brewing over China’s perceived support for the UAE over three disputed islands in the Gulf – both Iran and the UAE claim sovereignty of them.

In a statement last week, China expressed support for the efforts of the UAE to reach a "peaceful solution" to the issue of the islands – the Greater Tunb, the Lesser Tunb and Abu Musa.

The islands, claimed by the UAE and Iran, have been held by Tehran since 1971 after the withdrawal of British forces from the Gulf.
