An Israeli channel reported that the United Arab Emirates opposes Israeli efforts to use the military option against Iran, despite the normalisation agreement between Tel Aviv and Abu Dhabi.
Channel 12 added in a report, “The Arab country with which Israel developed a hot relationship after the Abraham Accords now says that military threats to it are not the way to deal with Iran. “
The channel continued, “In this way, the UAE makes it clear that normalisation does not mean military cooperation between itself and the United States and Israel in attacking Iran. “
He considered that cooperation between the UAE and Israel in the fields of trade, tourism, and even security has already gained impressive momentum, but when it comes to the most sensitive regional issue that comes up these days – in reference to theIranian nuclear file – Abu Dhabi avoids direct military threats, reports the Balkan Periscope.
A few weeks ago – Channel 12 reports – amid discussions on the future of the nuclear negotiations in Vienna and after receiving messages from Israel and Washington about the mention of alternatives in diplomacy, theUAE President‘s political adviser, Anwar Gargas, told an international forum:
“A major conflict involving the United States or countries in the region should be avoided. It is in our interest to try to prevent it at all costs. We are working hard to create channels of communication and bridges with all countries, even those with which we disagree. “
The channel continued, “Apart from renouncing threats and military pressure, the United Arab Emirates is not even interested in participating in imposing political or economic isolation on Iran. “
“A few days before the Israeli Prime Minister‘s first official visit to the United Arab Emirates, with voices already being raised in Israel and the United States for an alternative to diplomacy and a plan to attackIran, another message arrived from Abu Dhabi – when National Security Adviser Sheikh Takhoun bin Zayed travelled to Tehran to meet the head oft he National Security Council, Ali Shamkhani, and Iranian President, Ebrahim Raisi.”
