Abu Dhabi: The UAE has announced its full support to the US President Donald Trump’s strategy of dealing with Iran’s policies that undermine stability and security.
In a statement issued on Friday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation stressed that the Iranian regime, through its policies, is seeking to sow the seeds of chaos and instability in the region, adding “The nuclear agreement with Iran has given it the chance to correct its policies and responsibly deal with the international community; however, the Iranian government took advantage of this agreement to support its expansionist and irresponsible policy”.
The statement reiterated that the US new strategy comes as part of necessary steps to confront Iran’s negative and unacceptable behavior in all its forms, including its missile program, which poses a real threat to the regional security and stability. It also comes to defy its support for terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah and the Houthis and adoption of cyber-attacks as well as interference in the internal affairs of its neighbors.
The US Treasury’s classification of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards is a strong signal that will contribute to putting an end to Iran’s dangerous activities and its official support for terrorism, the ministry said.
The Ministry expressed its support for the new US strategy and affirmed the UAE’s commitment to work with the United States and all allies to counter Iranian policies and activities that undermine stability and support extremism in the region and the world.
