Iran Calls for Stronger Ties with UAE

Salehi made the remarks in a meeting with his Emirati counterpart, Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.

The Iranian foreign minister put the volume of bilateral trade at $25 billion and called for an increase in the level of trade transactions between the two countries.

The two also discussed the latest regional developments and ways to end the ongoing crisis in Bahrain.

Earlier in the day, Salehi met with UAE Prime Minister Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and they exchanged views on the situation in Bahrain.

“The deployment and involvement of foreign forces in Bahrain complicated the situation, and the continuation of this policy and militarism will only intensify the crisis in Bahrain,” Salehi said.

The Iranian minister returned to the Islamic Republic in the early hours of Monday after his formal day-long visit to the Persian Gulf state.

Last week, Salehi made a one-day trip to Qatar, where he discussed regional developments and bilateral ties with Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, Crown Prince Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabor Al Thani.

Salehi also visited the Omani capital of Muscat last Wednesday for a formal day-long visit, and held talks with senior Omani officials, including Omani Sultan Qaboos bin Said al-Saidon.
