Iran says unliteral claim to Arash gas field will create no rights for claimant

SHANA (Tehran) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Monday unilateral claim to the joint Arash gas field in the Persian Gulf will not create any rights for the claimant.

Iran has repeatedly announced its principled stance on the issue based on international law, underlined Nasser Kanaani.

The spokesman made the remarks during his weekly press conference in reaction to a statement issued by the Ministerial Council of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council, which claims only Saudi Arabia and Kuwait have the right to exploit the field, known as Al-Dorra in the two Arab states.

“We have emphasized the continuation of technical and legal talks with the Kuwaiti officials,” he pointed out.

Iran tries to create a positive and constructive atmosphere to develop its relations with neighbors, said Kanaani, adding raising such issues in one-sided statements is not acceptable at all.
