What Does the Israel-Backed UAE Say?

Kourosh Ziabari - Salem News: Speaking or writing as an Iranian citizen makes it difficult to weigh in on the latest remarks made by the UAE Foreign Minister, Abdallah Bin Zayid Al Nahyan, who likened Iran's legal sovereignty of it's Persian Gulf islands to the Zionist regime's occupation of Syria's Golan heights. Putting the nationalistic bias and prejudice aside, some focal points should be considered regarding what the novice FM has grumbled in his latest statements before the Federal Council of Emirates.

To one's utmost surprise, Mr. Nahyan, interestingly is 36 years old, and it means that he is one year younger than the country he represents internationally, since the official establishment of the state of United Arabic Emirates dates back to 1971, and Nahyan is born on April 30, 1972.

So, from a basic comparison with his Iranian counterpart who is a veteran, 57-year-old diplomat, one can simply figure out that Nahyan is too inexperienced and green to make verbal attacks against a country which has existed on the face of earth for the past 7500 years, and mathematically, 7500 is more than a little bit bigger than 37!

Mr. Manouchehr Mottaki, the Iranian counterpart of Mr. Nahyan, has been a senior diplomat and politician for the past 30 years, serving in various departments and sections of Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, so even if Mr. Nahyan has started his diplomatic career since he was 10, he would still lag 3 years behind Mr. Mottaki in terms of political experience.
