The Arab Par­lia­ment has reaf­firmed its stance to­wards the United Arab Emi­rates' peace­ful ap­proach to deal­ing with Iran’s oc­cu­pa­tion of the UAE's three Is­lands, Abu Musa and Greater and Lesser Tunb, through di­a­logue and good neigh­bourli­ness, urg­ing Iran to end the oc­cu­pa­tion of the three Is­lands through hold­ing di­rect ne­go­ti­a­tions or re­sort­ing to the In­ter­na­tional Court of Jus­tice. Ad­dress­ing the fifth ses­sion of the first leg­isla­tive term of the Arab Par­lia­ment, Ahmed bin Mo­hammed Al Jar­wan, the Speaker of the Arab Par­lia­ment re­newed his call for the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity and UN to im­ple­ment in­ter­na­tional res­o­lu­tions through solv­ing the Pales­tinian cause, es­tab­lish­ing an In­de­pen­dent State of Pales­tine with Jerusalem as its cap­i­tal and deter­ring racial poli­cies of the Zion­ist en­tity against the Pales­tini­ans. He af­firmed that all these poli­cies run counter to all in­ter­na­tional laws, ac­cord­ing to a re­port by the Mid­dle East news agency WAM. Dubai Po­lice ar­rested two drug deal­ers for the pos­ses­sion and sale of 4.6kg of heroin. Colonel Eid Mo­hammed Al Thani, di­rec­tor of the Dubai Anti-Nar­cotic De­part­ment said that the oper­a­tion hap­pened in May when they re­ceived in­for­ma­tion about the two men, de­scribed as Asian and aged 35 and 26, who were pos­sess­ing heroin and look­ing for some­one to smug­gle it into a neigh­bour­ing coun­try. “We sent an un­der­cover po­lice­man claim­ing that he could smug­gle the drugs for them,” Colonel Al Thani said. “We set a trap and ar­rested them while they were hand­ing over the drugs.” They were re­ferred to the Dubai Pub­lic Pros­e­cu­tion af­ter they ad­mit­ted to pos­sess­ing the drugs.
