The article focuses on Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's visit to Abu Musa Island as of May 23, 2012. Ahmadinejad exacerbated the dispute between Iran and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) over possession of Abu Musa. Iranian-UAE dispute over Abu Musa negatively affects Iran's relations with the rest of the Gulf States and with the Arab system as a whole. Iran wants the forces of the U.S. to be out of the region.
