Iran: UAE is reconsidering its tough stance on Yemen

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is “reviewing its aggressive approach to Yemen,” the presidency said on Wednesday.

This came on the lips of the President of the Office of the presidency, Mahmoud Awazi, in statements to reporters in the capital Tehran, Wednesday, according to the agency reported, “Tasnim” semi-official.

On the convening of a meeting of the two countries on the security of the Gulf, he said: “The UAE has changed its position from Yemen.”

He pointed out that there is a difference of views between the UAE and Saudi Arabia on the issue of Yemen.

He pointed out that the UAE is concerned about the security of the Gulf, adding: “The UAE wants to keep in touch with Iran on this issue (Gulf security).”

As of 1455 GMT, the UAE authorities did not follow the Iranian news agency.

On Tuesday, Iran said the commander of its border guards, Qasim Rezaei, met the commander of the UAE Coast Guard Mohammed Ali Musleh al-Ahbabi, according to the official Iranian news agency (IRNA), which showed a picture of them shaking hands.

The meeting dealt with “ways to expand diplomatic relations and strengthen border security between the two countries.”

Earlier, Tehran said that Abu Dhabi, such as Riyadh and Manama, was conditioned on a “policy change” of good neighborliness.

Tensions in the region rose on July 19, after Iran announced the detention of a British tanker in the strait, “to breach traffic regulations,” hours after a court in Gibraltar announced an extension of the detention of an Iranian oil tanker for 30 days.
