Dr Nayef Falah Al Hajraf called on Iran to abide by the basic principles and principles of the Charter of the United Nations and international law, based on respect for state sovereignty, non-interference in internal affairs, settlement of disputes by peaceful means and non-use or threat of the use or threat of the use of force. “The GCC stands in solidarity with the UAE against any threats to its sovereignty, security and stability within the framework of the common defence principle,” said Dr Al Hajraf. The security and stability of the GCC are indivisible, he said, while urging Iran to abide by good-neighborhood policies and refrain from threatening language that does not serve security and stability in the region and the world as a whole.
