Iran’s top nuclear negotiator, Ali Bagheri Kani, met with senior UAE officials on Wednesday during a visit to the country, the Emirates News Agency (Wam) reported.

Wam said Bagheri Kani, who is Iran’s deputy foreign minister, met with the diplomatic adviser to the UAE president, Anwar Gargash, and Emirati minister of state for foreign affairs Khalifa Shaheen Almarar.

The discussions stressed the importance of strengthening relations “on the basis of good neighbourliness and mutual respect,” working for greater regional stability and prosperity and developing bilateral economic and commercial ties, WAM said.
