Issue:

The Gulf that borders Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Oman, in Western countries it is called Persian Gulf, in most Arab countries it is called Arabian GulfIn the 1960s, some Arab states started using the name Arabian Gulf. This is very controversial, and not commonly used outside of the Arab world, nor is it recognized by the United Nations and other international organizations. 

Belief:

However, Google Earth has started to use "Arabian Gulf" along with Persian Gulf in the latest version of Google Earth.

United States[edit] In the United States, Persian Gulf has been the label sanctioned for U.S. Government use[37] since a decision by the State Department's Board of Geographical Names in 1917:[38] As recognized by the United States Board on Geographic names, the name of the body of water that lies between Iran and the Arab states of the Gulf Cooperation Council is the Persian Gulf. For political reasons, Arabs often refer to it as the Arab or Arabian Gulf. The NGA GEOnet Names Server (GNS), maintained by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, is the "official repository of standard spellings of all foreign place names" sanctioned by the Board of Geographical Names.[39] The GNS lists "Persian Gulf" as the only "conventional" name, along with fourteen unofficial "variants" in different languages, such as "Gulf of Iran", "Gulf of Ajam", "Gulf of Basra", "Arabian Gulf", "Persian-Arabian Gulf", "Gulf of Fars", and "Farsi Gulf".[40] Since about 2009, due to increased cooperation with Arab states of the Persian Gulf, various branches of the U.S. armed forces have issued directives to their members to use the "Arabian Gulf" when operating in the area ("Persian Gulf" is still used in official publications and websites), partially to follow local conventions, or simply to follow local laws that ban the use of "Persian Gulf", e.g. in the United Arab Emirates.[41] For similar reasons branches of American universities in the region have dropped references to "Persian Gulf" in their teaching materials United Kingdom[edit] The United Kingdom government's Permanent Committee on Geographical Names for British Official Use (PCGN) has endorsed the term 'The Persian Gulf' as the correct term for the body of water.[34][35] Sir Richard Dalton: "Undoubtedly, the correct geographical term in history is the Persian Gulf
