High-level UAE delegation to visit Iran soon

High-level UAE delegation to visit Iran soon

A top delegation from the United Arab Emirates will visit Iran soon, senior Arab and Iranian officials told Reuters on Wednesday.

An unnamed Arab official said a high-level delegation is expected to visit Tehran soon but the official declined to confirm whether the UAE's top national security adviser Sheikh Tahnoon bin Zayed Al Nahyan would lead the visit.

Sheikh Tahnoon is a brother of Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed.

A senior Iranian official said an Emirati official would visit soon but declined to give more details.

Anwar Gargash, the diplomatic adviser to the UAE president, said on Monday that his country was "taking steps to de-escalate tensions with Iran as part of a policy choice towards diplomacy and away from confrontation".

“The whole region would pay the price of such a confrontation for decades to come,” Gargash added. 

"I am realistic about the chances of success. It will be a slow process, but we hope that over time we can build together greater confidence between us and start to make progress towards a more sustainable and mutually beneficial status quo," he said.
