    The can also be said of other gulf states.

    Iran continues to trade freely in the U.A.E. through its various local outlets, particularly Dubai, where goods are imported and sent to Iran directly. The can also be said of other gulf states.

    Is the underlined part mean the same goes to other gulf countries or it includes other gulf countries? I donít understand the meaning of the can but I do try not to be passive.
