UAE foreign minister condemns Iran’s meddling in the Arab region

Published: Updated:

Speaking to the United Nations General Assembly, the United Arab Emirates’ Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan said that his country rejected extremism and that their policy of countering terrorism was firm.

“Saudi Arabia is threatened by Iranian missiles through the Houthi militias in Yemen who are intransigent on all peace initiatives as evidenced by their recent absence from the recent talks in Geneva,” Al Nahyan told the General Assembly.

The Emirati foreign minister reiterated the need for Iran to stop tampering with the region and interfering in the internal affairs of countries.

“The situation is becoming increasingly dangerous as countries provide media platforms for hate speech,” he added.

The foreign minister then concluded his speech by calling on Iran to restore Emirati rights to three islands currently being occupied by the Iranian regime.
