Will UAE and Iran resolve the three islands dispute?   

Aljazeera.com - 15 May, 2012
Author: Nima Khorrami Assl

This latest round of rhetorical warfare was instigated by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's official visit to the island of Abu Musa on April 11; a move that some described as "tactical", aiming to stir nationalist sentiment ahead of the nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+1 in Istanbul.
