That this House welcomes the strong and historic ties between the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), where some 120,000 British citizens currently reside; notes the UAE's continued territorial claims over the islands of Abu Musa and Greater and Lesser Tunb in the strategically important Strait of Hormuz; commends the work of the Federal National Council, in bringing this issue to international attention; believes that the UAE should be encouraged to press its case in either bilateral negotiations with Iran or through the International Court of Justice; and calls on the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to support the UAE in the resolution of this important issue.

This motion has been signed by a total of 14 MPs.
