DUBAI – The UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs has debunked rumours of an alleged policy split between the UAE and Saudi Arabia, accusing Qatar of sowing discord.
Anwar Gargash accused Qatar of fabricating reports as part of “desperate attempts” to create division between the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
“Our [UAE] redeployment in Hodeidah [Yemen] is a product of expanded dialogue within the alliance [with Riyadh] and we agreed with Saudi Arabia on a forthcoming strategy in Yemen,” Gargash said in a series of tweets o Friday.
“On Iran, our joint position is to avoid a confrontation and prioritise political action, while Doha seeks to fish in troubled waters by exaggerating a routine meeting,” he added. UAE and Iranian Coast guard official met last week to discuss fishing issues. ICA/Expat Media
