The United Arab Emirates’ National Security Adviser Sheikh Tahnoun bin Zayed al-Nahyan met with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi in Iran’s capital Tehran on Monday, Iranian and Emirati state media reported.
Raisi and Sheikh Tahnoun “discussed prospects of consolidating bilateral ties and explored an array of issues of common interest,” Emirati state news agency WAM reported.
Sheikh Tahnoun also met his Iranian counterpart Ali Shamkhani.
Strengthening bilateral relations between Iran and the UAE and discussing the latest regional developments are the goals of Sheikh Tahnoun’s visit to Tehran, Iran’s Supreme National Security Council said.
Sheikh Tahnoun’s visit came days after talks between Iran and world powers aimed at reviving the 2015 Iran nuclear deal adjourned on Friday.
Last month, Iran’s deputy foreign minister and chief nuclear negotiator Ali Baghreri-Kani met with senior Emirati officials in Abu Dhabi.
