The foreign minister of the United Arab Emirates on Monday called for an end to “crude interference in Arab affairs” that he said was undermining regional and international stability.

The minister, Khalifa Shaheen Al-Marar, was addressing the UN General Assembly in New York.

He called on the international community to protect the security of energy supplies passing through the region, as he said any attacks had direct repercussions on the international economy, peace, and security.

And he said any future nuclear deal with Iran needed to address Tehran’s destabilizing behavior in the Middle East.

There have been several attacks on oil tankers attributed to Iran in the Persian Gulf region since mid-2019, and a large missile and drone attack on Saudi oil installations in September 2019. Iran also arms and supports an array of militant proxy forces in the region, including Yemen’s Houthis that the UAE and Saudi Arabia see as a threat.

“We cannot ignore Iran’s development of its nuclear and ballistic missile programs, as well as its interference in the region,” al-Marar said.

He said regional powers should not be excluded from negotiations on the nuclear deal, which is aimed at limiting Iran’s development of nuclear technology but not its conventional arms program.
