Iran, UAE to Set up Political Commission

A0232917.jpgTEHRAN (FNA)- The Islamic Republic of Iran and the United Arab Emirates will establish the first joint high political commission in Tehran this week, Iran’s envoy to Abu Dhabi said.

The UAE’s deputy minister of foreign affairs, accompanied by a delegation of experts, has arrived in Tehran to prepare the ground for the establishment of the commission, Iran’s Ambassador to the UAE, Hamid Reza Assefi, told Mehr News Agency Sunday.

The UAE’s ministers of foreign affairs and justice, and most likely its minister of economy, would attend the commission, Assefi elaborated.

“At least five documents for bilateral cooperation are expected to be signed during the meeting, while other significant documents would be prepared to be signed in the commission’s later sessions,” he said.

Three judicial documents and agreements on customs and standards are among those to be singed in the current meeting, the envoy added.

Assefi said the agreement to establish the commission was made during President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s visit to the UAE in May 2007.

The envoy said differences of opinion between Iran and the UAE over the Persian Gulf islands would not hinder promotion of bilateral ties.
