The statement comes as a retort to rumours that circulated about a threat from Iran
Despite recent tensions, there have been calls for restraint in the region to avoid future escalation. Yesterday, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo had a phone call with Abu Dhabi’s HH Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation to that effect.
Given the proximity of neighbouring countries, incorrect conclusions can be drawn, however, residents of Dubai, private and public entities remain focussed on looking forward to what will be a very positive year for the emirate.
