Dr Al Hajraf said threats from Iranian President Rouhani carry dangerous repercussions for Arab Gulf security and stability.

The Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) on Monday strongly denounced 'threats' made by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in his recent speech and by other officials regarding sovereign decisions taken by the UAE.

In a statement, Dr Nayef Falah Al Hajraf said such threats carry dangerous repercussions for the security and stability of the Arab Gulf region and are inconsistent with diplomatic norms.

Al Hajraf called on Iran to adhere to the basic principles and fundamentals of the United Nations Charter and international law, which are based on respect for state sovereignty, non-interference in internal affairs, resolving disputes by peaceful means, and not using or threatening to use the force.

''The GCC stands in solidarity with UAE against any threats to its sovereignty, security and stability within the framework of joint defence principle,'' Dr Al Hajraf affirmed.

The security and stability of the GCC are indivisible, he said, calling on Iran to adhere to the policy of good neighbourliness and to desist from threatening language that does not serve security and stability in the region and the world at large.
