A senior Emirati official said on Tuesday the United Arab Emirates would soon send a delegation to Iran as part of efforts to improve ties with Tehran.

"I hope that it is the sooner the better and all our friends are aware of it," Anwar Gargash, diplomatic adviser to the UAE president, told reporters when asked when a UAE delegation would hold talks in Tehran.

The idea was to "turn over a new page" in relations, he said, Reuters reported.

Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Baqeri Kani met Gargash and other Emirati officials on Nov. 24 during a visit to the Persian Gulf Arab country.

There is a recognition by the Iranians that bridges need to be rebuilt, Gargash said. “We are picking that up positively."  

Asked whether the UAE was coordinating with Saudi Arabia on its moves on Iran, he said they were keeping its regional allies "in the picture".
