UAE minister says UAE-Israel agreement not directed at Iran

(Reuters) – United Arab Emirate’s minister of state for foreign affairs Anwar Gargash said on Monday the UAE reaching an agreement to normalise ties with Israel was a “sovereign decision” that was not directed at Iran.

The UAE on Sunday said it had summoned Iran’s charge d’affaires in Abu Dhabi in response to a speech by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani — in which he called the agreement a betrayal — that the foreign ministry described as “unacceptable”.
