Persian Gulf is only Persian Gulf sign now

Dear Madam/Si,rв
в
We would like to draw your kind attention to a factual oversight in your website. In the map for Middle east you have mentioned Arabian Gulf.в
In this respect and in order to uphold the professional norms of scientific researches, вmay I confer the following points with you: в
The incontrovertible historical fact is that the body of water separating Iran and the вArabian Peninsula has been always called the "Persian Gulf" by historians and вgeographers. This reality has been reflected in all maps dating from many centuries вago which referred to this body of water exclusively and consistently as the вPersian вGulfв. Furthermore, the practice of the United Nations over the past sixty years is вnoteworthy. The organization has constantly emphasized on the term вPersian Gulfв вas the only correct geographical designation used by the UN Secretariat in referring to вthis body of water. It should be noted that 22 Arab countries like others voted for two вGeneral Assembly Resolutions in 1971 and 1984 in which the term вPersian Gulfв was вadopted as a genuine name for the area. в
Besides, The Hague based International Court of Justice, as the UN principal judicial вorgan, in its latest issued Judgment in the Oil Platforms Case on 6 November 2003, вused thirty two times the term вPersian Gulfв. в
It could not be understood why your company with such an outstanding reputation вmight oversee this very known fact. Persian Gulf has always had only one standard вgeographical designation which is universally recognized. Decisions on nomenclature вassigned to geographic places should be made and based on historical and factual data, вauthentic documents and reliable sources, rather than on the political or fictional вconsiderations.в
Therefore, it would be scientifically and historically necessary to use the term вввPersian Gulfв in the title of the above mentioned book. The distorted terminology, вввArabian Gulfв, is nothing but a recent politically motivated move.
