DUBAI: The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has plans to adopt a new political strategy to handle issue of its islands, occupied by Iran.

Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Mohammed Gargash has called on Iran to enter into negotiations with the UAE over the three islands, and to refrain from using arrogant language.

"The UAE today is not that small injured baby which born on 2nd December 1971 rather it's a key State with huge potentials," said Gargash while calling on Iran to be a mature state and to take into consideration neighbour relationships that link the two countries.

"We will remain neighbours forever despite our differences," the minister told Dubai TV.
