Iran UAE mend Fences

I've Been Thinking:

Events in the Middle East are changing quickly. Long held assumptions are no longer givens. The foundations are shifting.

Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister, Ali Bagheri Kani, who also doubles as the chief Iranian nuclear negotiator just visited the UAE. In Dubai, he met with several UAE leaders.

UAE Presidential Adviser Anwar Gargash reported that the meetings went well.
In a tweet on the eve of Iran’s nuclear negotiations in Vienna with the P5+1 Kani announced his visit to the UAE. After the meeting he tweeted that “We agreed to open a new chapter” and that the meetings were “friendly and cordial.”

These two countries have been on opposite sides regarding Syria and Yemen and of course, Israel.

Iran is not the only country sending emissaries to the UAE. Recent high level visitors have included US Special Envoy for Iran Rob Malley and representatives from Israel, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. They all came to discuss the upcoming seventh round of nuclear talks.
