A 140 character segmented Arabic message requires 3 part segmented message.

134 characters would be the limit for a 2 part segmented message.

There may be some confusion because a single Arabic message can contain up to 70 characters.

However, if you go longer than 70 characters, each segment of a multipart message requires segmentation headers. Those headers reduce the number of Arabic characters per segment by 3, or 67 Arabic characters per segment.

(For an English/European text, the 160 character limit becomes 153 characters per segment for the same reason.)
