Ismail Kothari, a member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, has announced that the visit by Committee members to the three Iranian islands, planned to take place on Thursday morning, has been canceled at present because of the weather and cancellation of flights. He added that a decision on the date of travel will be made at the Committee meeting next Sunday. It should be noted that last week a media storm emerged over the matter, after the Arab Gulf states called on the Iranian Majlis members to avoid making such a trip to the disputed islands.
