The United Arab Emirates is seeking to allay concerns it has been impacted or is a target in tensions between its ally the United States and its regional neighbor Iran.
The Foreign Ministry on Wednesday said tensions in the region ``will not affect citizens, residents or visitors.'' It stressed that sectors across the country are operating normally.
Also Wednesday, the financial and tourist hub of Dubai said rumors being circulated regarding security threats targeting the emirate are fake and haven't been issued from any official Iranian government source.
The UAE, which has supported maximum pressure on Iran, has called for de-escalation.
