The United Arab Emirates hopes to find an "amicable solution" to the case of a British academic sentenced to life in jail for spying, the foreign ministry said Thursday.

"The UAE is determined to protect its important strategic relationship with a key ally," the ministry said in a statement, a day after PhD student Matthew Hedges was sentenced.

"Officials from both countries have discussed the matter regularly over recent months.

"Both sides hope to find an amicable solution to the Matthew Hedges case."
