Will UAE and Iran resolve the three islands dispute?   

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

Iran and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are once again at each others' throats over the three islands of Abu Musa, Greater Tunb, and the Lesser Tunb. 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.
