Iran’s approach to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will change, the country’s armed forces chief of staff, Major General Mohammad Bagheri, was quoted as saying on Sunday, after a deal between the Arab state and Tehran’s arch-foe Israel on normalising ties.

“Tehran’s approach to the UAE will change… If something happens in the Persian Gulf region and if our national security is damaged, however small, we will hold the UAE responsible for that and we will not tolerate it,” Major General Mohammad Bagheri said.

The UAE-Israel agreement announced last week, which US President Donald Trump helped to broker, is seen as aimed at bolstering opposition to regional power Iran.
