Iran’s deputy FM meets top UAE officials

Iran’s top nuclear negotiator Ali Bagheri held talks with senior Emirati officials on Wednesday during a visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), state news agency WAM reported.

It said Bagheri, who is Iran’s deputy foreign minister, met with the diplomatic adviser to the UAE president, Anwar Gargash, and Emirati minister of state for foreign affairs Khalifa Shaheen Almarar.

The discussions stressed the importance of strengthening relations “on the basis of good neighbourliness and mutual respect”, working for greater regional stability and prosperity and developing bilateral economic and commercial ties, WAM added.

In mid-November, senior Iranian and Persian Gulf officials told Reuters s high-level delegation from the UAE will visit Tehran soon as the Persian Gulf Arab state tries to reduce tensions with Tehran.

Gargash has stated the UAE was “taking steps to de-escalate tensions with Iran as part of a policy choice towards diplomacy and away from confrontation”.

Iran’s Presidfent Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi has openly reiterated strengthening ties with neighboring counties is a priority in for his government.
