DUBAI (Dispatches) -- Iran’s top nuclear negotiator Ali Baqeri Kani met with senior Emirati officials on Wednesday during a visit to the United Arab Emirates, state news agency WAM reported, in a rare visit that comes as Abu Dhabi moves to reduce tensions with rival Tehran. WAM said Baqeri 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 neighborliness and mutual respect”, working for greater regional stability and prosperity and developing bilateral economic and commercial ties, WAM said. Gargash earlier this month said that the UAE was taking steps to de-escalate tensions with Iran.
