United Arab Emirates

Yearbook 1999

United Arab Emirates. In June, a conflict developed between the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, both members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). According to Countryaah official website, the United Arab Emirates criticized Saudi Arabia for approaching Iran without regard to the United Arab Emirates being involved in a territorial dispute with that country over control of three islands in the Persian Gulf. A fierce exchange of words between the countries followed. The issue of the islands was discussed when the GCC's foreign ministers met in mid-June and when representatives of Iran and Saudi Arabia met a month later. However, no solution was reached.
