Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has met with the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum in Abu Dhabi.

Upon his arrival on Wednesday, the top Iranian diplomat was welcomed by his Emirati counterpart Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and Iran’s ambassador to the UAE Mohammad Reza Fayyaz, Press TV reported.

During his day-long visit, which comes at the invitation of the UAE foreign minister, Zarif will discuss bilateral ties, regional developments and international issues with the Emirati officials, including UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and the UAE’s foreign minister.

The Iranian foreign minister is also scheduled to visit Iranian nationals residing in the UAE.

Zarif has recently visited Iran’s southern Arab neighbor countries of Kuwait, Oman and Qatar.

In his Twitter account, the Iranian foreign minister hailed his meetings with leaders of the regional countries and wrote, “My meetings with leaders of Kuwait, Oman and Qatar demonstrated that what unites us is far greater than our minor differences.”
